Abstract
CFAV QUEST has undergone numerous sea trial activities involving infrared (IR) measurements of the unsuppressed platform, as well as trials involving various levels of IR suppression. These trials were all performed with the support of W.R. Davis Engineering Limited. (DAVIS). Previous IR measurements of the vessel were performed with passive exhaust plume suppression via IRSS (infrared suppression system) designed and fabricated by DAVIS, installed on the port and starboard side MPDE’s as well as SSDG’s. In addition, sea water injection (SWI) active plume cooling systems designed and fabricated by DAVIS have been tested. Finally, a single active hull cooling (AHC) zone was implemented on the port side. This zone spanned the hull plating region just below the number 2 deck. The next phase of IR suppression testing aboard Quest will involve upgrading the current AHC system with one that blankets the entire port side of the vessel. The testing of this upgraded AHC system will occur during QUEST trial Q-340.
