Evolution of Machinery Control Systems Support At the Naval Ship Systems Engineering Station

Timothy Scherer, Jeffrey Cohen
25 pp.

From introduction: This paper will discuss the support that NAVSSES has provided the fleet using a historical perspective to show how MCS support evolved. While the organization provides steam control systems and fluid systems automation as well as networks and bridge control systems, this paper focuses on the MCS product line. A discussion of the early support for gas turbine programs and their associated control systems will be presented to provide a perspective on how those programs influenced the current MCS organization. The progression of support from early programs through in-service engineering to leading modernization programs will be addressed throughout this paper.
