The Arsenal Ship concept of operations is unique. The Arsenal Ship provides a remote magazine for other joint warfare systems to utilize, with limited ability to defend itself. Ultimately, it resembles a combat logistics ship designed to sail into harm's way ready to provide the initial punch as required. Therefore, it should be minimally manned by employing the most cost effective technology. With the requirement to reduce crew size, a new approach to manning is required. This thesis provides an alternative approach to manning by identifying the most cost effective investment in automation commensurate with reducing crew size to the lowest feasible level
