Abstract : The VICTORIA Class Submarines (VCS) are subject to a continuing program of technical upgrades. One such program is replacing the Fire Control System (FCS) displays and re-hosting the system on linux-based servers. As part of this technical refresh, Defence Research and Development Canada Atlantic has been asked to provide input in the form of requirements that might be satisfied by the addition of content to an anticipated 10% extra screen area. It is expected that these requirements would be used to assist in the evaluation of proposed design/system solutions. To derive these requirements a cognitive work analysis was carried out on the basis of two interview sessions with a total of nine subject matter experts. A variety of different methods were used to identify requirements at a level that do not impose a particular design solution. A total of 30 requirements were generated covering a variety of different potential design directions.
