A methodology for technology characteristics and evaluation for naval ships
Goddard, Charles Harold.
MetadataShow full item record
A rational method for evaluating hull, mechanical, and electrical technologies for future ship designs is presented. Requirements are established for the management and coordination of technology information. A format is proposed for the characterization of emerging technologies. The basic steps necessary to establish a technology assessment baseline ship are presented. In addition, a process is developed for conducting impact evaluation when performance is held constant. A case study for a frigate is conducted to validate the proposed methodology. The methodology will assist ship designers and research and development managers in deciding which technologies should be funded so they may be incorporated in a future ship design. (Author)
