Abstract
The Canadian Navy is currently in the process of developing the requirements and contracting for delivery of new classes of ships. The Navy has identified the reduction of through-life costs of new ships as a priority. As crew size is a major contributor to throughlife costs, ways of reducing crew number are being investigated. However, crewing levels can only be reduced if the ability of the ship to complete its mission is not jeopardized. In Phase I of this project, a critical assessment of available technologies, both commercial and militarized, in Battle Damage Control Systems (BDCS) was conducted with the goal of providing insight on the future vision for Naval damage control as it relates to the goal of crew reduction/optimization. In this Phase II report, a critical assessment of fire suppression systems and components was completed to rationalize which systems/capabilities are sufficiently mature to be considered for implementation on new and/or existing Canadian Naval platforms.
