$69,932.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Anthony Sutorik
Abstract:
Not Available One risk of using advanced technology to reduce the crew size of Navy ships is that even if the crew members are able to perform their primary missions, they may be unable to handle collateral missions such as damage control. We will address this problem in several ways. First, we… More
