Abstract : The report presents the results of a study designed to (1) evaluate the feasibility of providing multi-class emergency ship control training by means of a generalized casualty control training device, (2) derive detailed functional characteristics for such a device, and (3) determine the implications of this concept for the Navy's existing submerged ship control training program. Task/system analysis techniques were used to assess the degree of commonality among the various classes of nuclear submarines with respect to potential casualty situations, the criticality of display and control elements, and the characteristics of the personnel to be trained. Composite requirements for advanced casualty control simulation and training in all classes of nuclear attack and ballistic missile submarines were derived and used as the basis for determining the specific functional characteristics of a proposed generalized training system. In addition, the overall submarine ship control training program was examined and various recommendations were made concerning the integration of the proposed training device in the program.
