Abstract : An integrated ship control console is described which is designed so one man, under normal watchstanding conditions, can perform effectively all normal ship control operations; steering and diving, hovering, submerging and surfacing, trim and ballast control, missile compensation, and speed ordering control; and so, in emergency situations, an additional man can perform at an emergency helmsman's station. Three men now perform ship control operations i normal conditions, and a fourth man is required during an emergency situation. This integrated ship control con ole is designed for FBM submarines and is also gen rally compatible with the present requirements for ASW and attack submarines. (Author)
