Abstract : A workshop was held at the Naval Research Laboratory, 8-10 June 1994, to identify all technologies that could make an impact on innovative damage control concepts and systems, specifically fire fighting, so the Navy can move out smartly in its approach to damage control in the 21st century. The workshop was used to identify the critical component technologies and potential players that can support an integrated science and technology program in fire protection and damage control. In this type of forum, the relevant science and technology issues were addressed, and related work in government, commercial and university environments was identified. The technology limitations, needs and integration issues were also identified. -BKA
