Abstract
Maritime Concept Development and Experimentation (CD&E) is being implemented to facilitate development of innovative concepts and rapid prototyping of solutions to advance maritime capabilities and fill capability gaps. Concept development is applied to the problem of an in-harbour transit scenario for a Canadian Patrol Frigate (CPF). The objective is to explore the CD&E process through the use of a current issue. The scenario represents a hypothetical ship deployment versus an asymmetric threat of a small craft surface terrorist attack. The nature of the threat means that unconventional solutions are required. As an initial approach, the use of group decision-making methodologies is tested for generating and screening concepts. The lessons learned provide initial observations of the CD&E process as well as insights for this scenario.
