Steller Systems to Develop Ship Damage Control System

Steller Systems is set to develop an innovative damage control system for ships.

The United Kingdom’s Defence and Security Accelerator awarded a contract to the British naval architecture and marine engineering firm Steller Systems for the development of an innovative damage control system for ships.

The development entails changes to platform design and operation, steady reductions in crew numbers and the accelerating move to uncrewed, autonomous vessels that will require new approaches.

In addition to this, the new approaches are present to ensure that damage control measures will continue to be successfully attained.

Steller Systems is tasked to design, build, and test a prototype system that can be “permanently installed or rapidly deployed on a ship in the event of damage” under the awarded contract.

According to the firm, the work is expected to be based on their “extensive experience of naval and commercial vessel damage stability, providing emergency response naval architecture support to Royal Navy vessels, designing uncrewed vessels and rapid prototyping using innovative techniques.”

Damage control systems are set to provide assistance in times of emergencies that may gravely affect the vessel and its cargo or passengers.

Furthermore, some damage control systems offer an offline feature, which ensures that data is transmitted once a connection is reestablished, even if the connection has been lost.
