Abstract
Not Available Advanced Technology and Research Corporation (ATR) proposes to develop and demonstrate a prototype system approach for automation of shipboard food service operations. Phase I will baseline the conceptual design and evaluate the concept's feasibility. A Phase I Option will serve as a bridge to Phase II and result in the Preliminary Design of a prototype implementation. In Phase II, the prototype will be developed and installed in a shore facility for testing and evaluation. For Phase III, the prototype will be transitioned to a ship for at-sea testing and operational evaluation. The basic rapid prototyping approach will make maximum use of existing products and technologies from related or unrelated areas and adapt them for this application and the shipboard environment. Areas of risk to be addressed include acceptability of the food, automated storage/retrieval of chilled/frozen meal units within shipboard constraints, response times, cleanup & waste disposal, and underway replenishment.
