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 will define the prototype emergencies that ships face. Then we will use the powerful and versatile simulation platform Micro Saint to represent the workload demands for several of these prototypes. Next, we will conduct Cognitive Task Analyses to define the cognitive demands on planners during damage control incidents, to identify the requirements for a planning support system. Finally, we will use these findings to generate a conceptual design, represented in storyboard form, for a planning support system to handle damage control events. The option task will include a review of the technology and a reverse engineering study of a significant damage control incident, using Micro Saint to study the impact of different technologies on reducing the workload requirements.
