1 Damage Control Communications Systems and Techniques Lesson Topic 2.1

2 Enabling Objectives ¶Match damage control communications systems with their advantages and limitations ·Select the purpose of damage control communications ¸Discuss the suggested priority of use for damage control communications systems

3 Purpose of Damage Control Communications zTo provide an orderly relay of the information from station to station zAllow personnel not at the scene of the damage to evaluate ships capabilities and take corrective action accordingly

4 Types of Damage Control Communications zIntegrated Voice Communications System, (IVCS) zSound-powered telephone circuits zDamage Control Wirefree Communications (DC WIFCOM) zIntercommunication system (MC circuits) zShip's service telephone zAnnouncing system (1MC)

5 Integrated Voice Communications System (IVCS) zIVCS is a computer-controlled telephone system zIVCS consolidates communication functions zIVCS can be connected to: yShip's announcing system yShore telephone lines yRadio communications yCertain battle sound-powered telephone circuits

6 Integrated Voice Communications System (IVCS) zThe two switching centers for the system are located one forward and one aft zNets are similar to sound-powered telephone circuits in that they are closed-loop circuits zMonitoring of the communications of any station on the net is possible by all phone talkers on the net

7 IVCS phone terminal

8 IVCS with hands free box

9 IVCS net box

10 IVCS net box repair locker set up

11 Sound-Powered Telephone System zSound-Powered Telephone System is the most common means of communication for DC zIt requires no external source of power zPrimary means of communications between vital stations

12 Sound-Powered Telephone System zThe sound-powered telephone system is made up of five types of circuits yPrimary yAuxiliary ySupplementary yEmergency yMiscellaneous

13 Sound-Powered Telephone System zPrimary circuits yAll circuits necessary for vital battle stations yCircuits are designated JA through JZ; for example x2JZ - Main DC circuit x3JZ - Main deck repair circuit/ Repair 1 x4JZ - Forward repair circuit/repair 2 x5JZ - After repair circuit/Repair 3 x6JZ - Amidships repair circuit/repair 4 x7JZ - Engineer's repair circuit/Repair 5 x8JZ - Flight deck repair circuit xJA - Captain's battle circuit

14 Sound-Powered Telephone System zAuxiliary circuits yAlternate means of communications yWiring is run in separate cables installed as far as possible from the primary cables yAn Auxiliary circuit is identified by a primary circuit designation - preceded by the letter "X xXJA Auxiliary Captain's Battle xX2JZ Auxiliary Damage and Stability Control xX1JV Auxiliary Maneuvering and Docking

15 Sound-Powered Telephone System zSupplementary circuits yCommunication for various battle stations and their subordinate stations, (other than DCC and REP STAs) zExamples of supplementary circuits are x2JV - Engineer's circuit, (Engineers) x3JV - Engineer's circuit, (Boilers) x4JV - Engineer's circuit, (Fuel and Stability) x5JV - Engineer's circuit, (Electrical)

16 Sound-Powered Telephone System zEmergency circuits yProvide a means of rigging communication lines between vital battle stations yEmergency circuit designations are also preceded by the letter "X", but have no letter after "J xX40J - Casualty communication circuit xX50J - Fog foam circuit

17 Sound-Powered Telephone System zEmergency circuits (cont.) yEmergency circuit of main concern to DC is the X40J yX40J circuit consists of permanent vertical riser cables installed at vital below-deck battle stations yFour 200-feet reels of telephone cables are stowed in each repair locker

18 Sound-Powered Telephone System zMiscellaneous circuits yAny sound-powered telephone circuit not included in the above classifications yOther interior communications circuits, announcing systems, and various alarm circuits

19 X40J portable reel

20 Sound-Powered Telephone System zSound Powered Phone Directory yDirectory is comprised of 7 parts xPart I - Alphabetical list xPart II - Ship control circuits xPart III - Damage Control xPart IV - Weapons control circuits xPart V - Primary flight control circuits xPart VI - Manning circuits under various conditions xPart VII - Listing of Sound-Powered Telephone Circuit X40J communications between subdivisions on the DC deck when ZEBRA is set

21 Damage Control Wirefree Communication System zDC WIFCOM shall be the primary means of communication within the Repair Station area zWIFCOM provides a flexible and survivable means of rapid communications zWIFCOM is a portable radio transceivers used to provide instantaneous communications

22 Damage Control Wirefree Communication System zWIFCOM portable radios have 4 selectable channels yChannel 1 Repair 5 yChannel 2 Repair 2 yChannel 3 Repair 3 yChannel 4 Ship to Ship zWIFCOM SHALL NOT BE USED IN A WEAPONS HANDLING INCIDENT/ACCIDENT

23 Damage Control Wirefree Communication System


25 Intercommunication System, (DC Announcing System) zTwo-way, station to station circuit operated by ship's electrical system zIntercom units (MC Circuit) provide fast and dependable two-way transmission between DCC and each repair station

26 Intercommunication system

27 Ship's Service Telephones, (J - Circuit) zNot rugged, may go out of commission early in action (electrical power needed) zOn some ships the ship's service telephone are available for DC communications when near or at repair stations

28 Priority of Communications zThe priority of communication from DCC to repair locker ¶Integrated Voice Communication System(IVCS) ·Sound-powered Telephones ¸MC circuit ¹Ship's Service Telephone, (J - Circuit) ºDC WIFCOM

29 General Announcing System zVital one-way communications y1MC - Shipwide y2MC - Engineering y3MC - Hanger Deck y5MC - Flight deck

30 General Announcing System z1 MC yProvides a means of transmitting general orders and information yAll topside areas & ship internal spaces yControl stations are located at the Pilot House, Secondary Conning Station, OOD Stations and all Quarterdecks

31 General Announcing System zAlarms can be transmitted over all speakers zAlarms have priority in the following order ¶Collision Alarm ·Chemical Attack Alarm ¸General Alarm ¹Flight Crash Alarm

32 Other communication systems zVoice tubes zClosed Circuit Television System

33 Summary and Review zPurpose of Damage Control Communications zTypes of Damage Control Communications zIntegrated Voice Communications System zSound-Powered Telephone System zIntercommunication System, (MC circuit) zShip's Service Telephones, (J - Circuit) zDamage Control Wirefree Communication System

34 Summary and Review zPriority of Communications zGeneral Announcing System zOther Communication systems
