Existing gas turbine control systems onboard U.S Navy ships are based on analog technology developed nearly forty years ago. In addition to being costly to maintain and provide replacement parts, these controls are not easily upgradeable. They do not allow the introduction of advanced monitoring functions and do not take advantage of improvements in control technology. Recognizing the shortcomings of these controls, the U.S. Navy has engaged in a program to introduce current technology to the fleet in order to lengthen the service life of its surface combatants.
