Abstract
Since shortly after the introduciton of the Canadian Patrol Frigate to the Canadian Navy, the Dockyard Laboratory (Atlantic), the Naval Engineering and Test Establishment and the Directorate of Maritime Ship Support have collaborated to undertake numerous experimental trials onboard these platforms. These trials have predominately been in response to operational challenges such as structural and component cracking and have included a wide variety of experimental set-ups, monitoring operational conditions such as temperature, strain, motion, position and environment. While these trials have been instrumental in resolving numerous operational issues, a number of lessons have been learned. These lessons are being employed to conduct more effective experimental evaluations and in the development of advanced sensing systems for marine platforms. This presentation will review the history of these collaborative trials and a summary of the lessons learned will be provided. A preview of forthcoming trial evaluations, employing recently developed advanced sensing system will also be discussed.
