Naval Damage Control

With the increase in naval platform cost and the expansion of automation aboard vessels, it is essential that best practise surrounding Damage Control & Fire Fighting (DC&FF) can be frequently examined and dissected. This enables much needed multi-national information sharing which means that latest lessons learned can be adopted by all stakeholders.
