NEW SHIP AUTOMATION

This paper examines the principal monitoring and control requirements of machinery and other non-electronic systems on new U.S. Navy ships. Measurable parameters and control functions are defined. An automated system design concept is developed. Principal hardware and software modules are identified. The advantages of centralized automatic control and monitoring of ship's engineering systems are demonstrated in terms of reduced manpower, ease of operation, ease of maintenance, greater equipment safety, and improved system efficiencies and performance. /Author/
