At the request of DGMDO, DRDC conducted a study of technologies for crewing reduction to catalogue known technologies, identify those that are applicable to the Canadian navy, and prepare proposals for a way ahead. Information received from contacts in Australia, The Netherlands, UK and USA, together with the results of two extensive literature reviews and world-wide-web searches was assembled into a matrix of technologies. The categories include whether the technology can be implemented at no cost to the ships, at minor cost, at magor cost such as a refit, can be implemented at new ship builds, or will require further development to implement. Two workshops with the Working Group representatives and four focus groups with fleet operators were held to evaluate the applicability of these technologies to Canadian navy ships. Recommendations for the way ahead are that the Canadian navy should develop its own capability to evaluate workload and crewing reduction technologies and ship complements for existing and future ships. It is also recommended that DRDC should support that effort with short-term and longer-term activities.
