Abstract

DOCUMENTED "LESSONS LEARNED" AND INVESTIGATION REPORTS FROM NAVAL SHIPBOARD DISASTERS HAVE CITED NEEDS FOR IMPROVED PROTECTION FOR DAMAGE CONTROL/FIREFIGHTER (DC/FF) PERSONNEL. IMPROVEMENTS RECOMMENDED GENERALLY HAVE ADDRESSED SINGLE ITEMS AND INCREMENTAL CHANGES TO MEET A SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE SHORTFALL. IT IS PROPOSED THAT A SYSTEMS APPROACH BE UTILIZED TO UPGRADE INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION AND DC/FF CAPABILITY WITH A SHIPBOARD INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION SYSTEM (SIPS). FUTURE SHIPS BECAUSE OF REDUCED MANNING WILL REQUIRE MORE EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE DC/FF PERFORMANCE. THE SIPS WILL PROTECT THE INDIVIDUAL AGAINST MULTIPLE HAZARDS, WILL REDUCE FATIGUE AND WILL PERMIT A LONGER STAY AT THE FIRE SITE WHILE ENHANCING FUNCTIONAL CAPABILITY THROUGH HUMAN ENGINEERING. PHASE I WILL DEFINE THE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE AND PROVIDE SUBSYSTEM AND COMPONENT FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTIONS.
