AUTOMATED MACHINERY CONTROL FOR THE FFG-7

The "Oliver Hazard Perry" class of guided missile frigates is equipped with a modern, digital and analogue control system using solid state electronics which provides automated controls for optimum performance and minimum operating personnel. The use of small digital computers with read-only memory for automated propulsion control, electric plant supervision, demand data and data logging, and the use of solid state logic elements have permitted the accumulation of hundreds of data and logic decision functions into relatively small areas. Examples are given.
