Abstract
Defence Research & Development Canada – Atlantic has been performing research under Project 11gr to assist the Canadian Navy in understanding how to achieve ‘optimized crewing’ for future platforms, especially in the context of damage control. Preliminary results of this project have indicated that one barrier to the Canadian Navy achieving optimized crewing is the lack of a set of detailed performance requirements for the internal battle, the internal ship systems and functions established to support the external battle. This report describes research conducted to develop a philosophy of the internal battle that can be readily adapted by the Navy and turned into formal doctrine. It includes details of the research methodology, which involved consultations with over 35 members of the Canadian Navy, and the proposed strategic and operational philosophy of the internal battle.
