Although warships have several layers of defence, history has shown a multitude of incidents where these have all failed resulting in battle damage of the ship. Much can be done in the design of the ship to provide an adequate level of resilience against anti-ship missiles, UNDEX threats, shaped charges, gunfire or asymmetric threats.

For whom?

The course is aimed at:

  • Navy personnel
  • Survivability experts
  • Shipyards
  • Designers of naval vessels
  • Naval ship manufacturing industry
  • Managers of new naval projects
  • Project engineers who make specifications of naval equipment and installations
  • Engineers who monitor naval building or upgrade projects
  • Technical procurement officers
  • Classification societies

Purpose of the course

The main purpose of the course is to understand the basics of designing against modern above water and underwater threats. Participants will learn the principles of ship survivability, so that they are able to design themselves, to communicate with specialists, to tackle an underwater shock problem or to deal with above water threats. The knowledge can also be applied to upgrade ships for new threats.
