Lockheed Martin's Human Alerting and Interruption Logistics-Surface Ship (HAIL-SS) system has successfully transitioned from laboratory to platform as an integrated component on the newly commissioned USS Sterett DDG 104.

HAIL-SS increases a U.S. Navy warfighter's ability to handle high rates of alerts and interruptions without distraction, and it mediates between human users and various mechanisms that generate alerts in complex systems.

It reduces rates of alerts through intelligent redirection and filtering, creates meaningful announcements of alerts, and leverages a human's cognitive talent to manage quick shifts in attention. HAIL-SS also provides context recovery to improve human performance when resuming tasks following interruption.

For the Aegis system, HAIL-SS enables workstation operators to quickly recognize and focus on critical alerts while simultaneously maintaining adequate situational awareness of high rates of other, less-important alerts.

Operators can keep contact with critical information during high-volume, alert-based interruptions, such as those that occur during stressful combat conditions in an Aegis Combat Information Center.
