Award Amount: $600,000.00
 

Abstract:

The objective of this SBIR Project is to establish ship design guidelines for ship hull and onboard equipment that prevent or limit ship motion profiles that adversely affect acceptable human performance. The product is the Ship motion and Human Accommodation, Readiness and Performance (SHARP) tool that will (1) support the creation of models of shipboard human performance in a specified motion environment and (2) include an addressable database of ship motion profiles that represent the predicted ship motion of various hull types. The SHARP Tool will provide: specifications of six degree of freedom motions and accelerations on existing as well as advanced ships that produce degradation of human performance and capability to the point of being unacceptable; design rules to be implemented for existing and advanced hull types/motion effects to reduce the incidence and impact of performance degradations; and guidelines for evaluating human performance in a ship motion environment.
