AbstractFuture Naval vessels, having reduced manning, will rely on installed systems and situational awareness for damage control. Casualty assessment, including fire and smoke spread, will be initially implemented using a physics-based heuristic approach with FSSIM as its backbone. The next generation of this predictive software will be developed in the Phase II effort. The objective is to develop, test, and demonstrate a successful prototype of sensor driven predictions of shipboard fire and smoke spread operating at or faster than real time. The outputs will forecast fire conditions in support of damage control decision making processes.
