Since the Navy adopted the SUBSAFE program, there have been zero submarines lost at sea due to non-combat-related reasons.
In addition, by bluntly describing some bureaucratic foibles and tragic administrative decisions (such as shortchanging Scorpion's SubSafe package during a 1967 refueling overhaul to save money), Johnson's work leads one to perceive that--as is true in virtually all submarine disasters that we know something about--there had to have been some series of complicating, cascading events that overwhelmed any efforts by the crew to bring the (perhaps minor) initiating casualty under control.
CYBERSAFE is modeled after SUBSAFE, which is the rigorous submarine safety program begun after the loss of USS Thresher in 1963.
Jonathan Greenert, directed CYBERSAFE to pattern its work on Naval Sea Systems Command's (NAVSEA) Submarine Safety, commonly called SUBSAFE, program--a quality assurance program designed to maintain the safety of the Navy's nuclear submarine fleet.
These first six IWST's are: Deck and Auxiliary, the E2/ C2, the H3 & H53 helicopters, Hull Mechanical & Electrical (HM&E), Common Avionics, and Subsafe Level 1/Advanced SEAL Delivery System/ Deep Submergence Systems Program (SS L1/ASDS/DSSP).
Similar to the submarine community's SUBSAFE program, CYBERSAFE is a program to maximize mission assurance for critical warfighting components.
The aim is to change the culture to one of procedural compliance by emulating the concept established by the submarine community with its SUBSAFE methodology.
* TG CYBERSAFE will construct a program that is patterned after the SUBSAFE program.
Building on the lessons learned from the Navy's proven SUBSAFE and Airworthiness programs, CYBERSAFE is envisioned as a set of stringent standards for procedural compliance.
