Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to make recommendations for improving the design and operation of the Control Room in the SS 563564. The emphasis is upon the general arrangement of equipment and personnel, although controls and indicators on present submarines are also evaluated. Where present equipment is duplicated in the SS 563564, the specific criticisms and recommendations apply directly to the new submarines.
