Abstract : In this century destroyers have made up a large portion of the U.S. fleet and contributed to determining Navy-wide manpower requirements. Destroyers vary in mission and capabilities. Plans exist to begin development of the next generation destroyer (SC 21). The class is projected to begin construction in 2003. This study will project the ship-board manpower requirements and personnel costs based on historical trends, exploitable technology, and anticipated mission. Estimates will vary according to the degree that technology advances. Navy organizational constraints also effect manpower requirements and will be considered in the estimates. This study projects requirements based upon three scenarios involving technology and Navy practices.
