Abstract:

The Damage Control Information Display System DCIDS is a graphical information-retrieval and equipment-control system that gives shipboard damage control personnel the ability to detect, analyze, and combat various types of damage control situations. A prototype of DCIDS has been developed for use aboard the ex-USS Shadwell, the Navys full-scale fire research and test ship from which damage control and ship survivability investigations, analyses, and evaluations are performed. This DCIDS implementation runs on a PC-compatible computer under MicroSoft Windows and communicates with the Shadwells data collection computer through an Ethernet TCPIP connection. This report describes the operation and use of the DCIDS program. It also provides the user interface and information management specifications for modifying the program for other fire test scenarios and equipment interfacing.
