Pagination or Media Count:
This report documents the achievements of the first-years effort in a four-year research and development program to develop autonomous control technology for application to shipboard damage assessment and control for reduced manning DC-ARM. A prototype intelligent controller IC was designed for application to a single compartment. This prototype was successfully demonstrated in a laboratory model of a compartment that incorporated COTS sensors and actuators. The compartment model and IC are described and results are discussed. Identification of issues to be addressed and proposed follow-on tasks are included.
