GDS provides MIL-STD-810H training, online or onsite.

How to Find any US Military Standard Document

The ASSIST database is the official source for specifications and standards used by the US Department of Defense. Indexed documents include current and historical military and federal standards and specifications. The ASSIST document database houses over 180,000 PDF files associated with about 82,000 of the approximately 111,000 indexed documents. (Updates vary)

Examples are:

  • MIL-STD-810H
  • MIL-STD-461G

What is the website address?

US DOD provides with a tool called ASSIST QUICK SEARCH for searching for any of the US military standards. ASSIST website has the historic versions of the standards. All can be downloaded free of charge.

https://quicksearch.dla.mil/qsSearch.aspx is the link for Assist website quick search tool.

Why US DOD does not charge fee for standards?

US DOD assumes that the cost of the effort for developing standards is met with the tax dollars paid by the people. That is probably the reason why these products are free for anyone. The intended audience therefor is probably the US people.

ENGINE ROOM RESOURCE MANAGEMENT TRAINING MODEL

Engine Room Resource Management (ERM) is a system of achieving safe engineering operations by proactively utilizing and managing personnel, equipment, and information in the machinery space. A review the team roles, human factors, and situational awareness is required to plan and implement a proper ERM program. Remember, good ERM practices can save personnel and vessels from unwanted risks.

The course complies with the standards of Regulation III/1, III/2, III/6 and VIII/2 of STCW Convention, Section A-III/1, III/2, III/6, A-VIII/2 and B-VIII/2 of STCW Code and SIRE requirements.

The course is aimed at officers of the engineering watch (operational level), 2nd Engineer and Chief Engineer (management level).

The course is a mix of theory case studies and simulation exercise covering topics below. The following are the four main areas to cover in an ERM training:

GDS SERS IMO Engine Room Resource Management Course Model 2.07 IMO. Certification Training. Marine Engineering Cadets. Class Regulations.
  • RESOURCE ALLOCATION: Effective resource allocation including crew, plant, equipment, and information management.
  • LEADERSHIP: The leadership responsibilities of the Chief Engineer, including staff training and motivation, preventing crew fatigue, and conducting appropriate drills
  • TEAM ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The roles and responsibilities for both individuals and team. Planning and execution must be reviewed with past experiences with the aim of reducing human error using situational awareness and closed loop communication.
  • TECHNICAL OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT: A study with a thorough review of equipment functions, standard operating procedures including safety procedures.

Designing your ERM Training with SERS

In this section, we provide a guidance on how to design an IMO ERM training with step by step approach. We hope that it helps you provide an effective training for your cadets or engineers already working onboard.

1. Certification of the Simulator

Certification of the simulator is highly important. You must ensure that it has all capabilities to provide the capabilities training based on STCW 2010. As for the ERM training, the simulator must be capable of demonstrating the IMO Model Course (2.07) exercises.

GDS Ship Engine Room Simulator (SERS™) is a Training Simulator System with a Full Mission (Class A) type approval certificate obtained from ClassNK. ClassNK is an IACS affiliate Classification Organization. Certificate of SERS™ lists the IMO STCW 2010 competencies, as provided in Table 1, which includes the compliance to IMO STCW Tables A-III. The class certification of SERS includes the IMO Model Course 2.07 (207) Ed.). The trainee is able to perform all exercises contained in the IMO Model Course 2.07. All exercises were demonstrated during the Class Type Approval.

Table 1: SERS™ Certification Items for STCW Training Competencies.

Table A-III/6.12Ensure compliance with pollution-prevention requirements

2. Simulator Detail Specs

This is probably the most tricky part. Some simulators could be cheap (!) and may be simulating the systems at a very high level. Does it have a main engine lubricating oil system? Probably yes. Does it satisfy the IMO competencies. Well this is the tricky part. It must have the LO Temperature Control System appropariately and realistically simulating the systems. We gave a simple example. Most trainers learn the specifics of the simulator after some experience of using it and become aware of the isues that prevent providing an efficient engine room simulator training. This may not be of an issue for a freshman level students; however, it becomes important when trainees are already completed their training onboard a ship and that they completed their marine engine engineering courses (Diesel Engines, Ship Auxiliary Engines, Electrical Systems, Automatic Control Systems, etc.). Additionally, the models and simulated systems has critical importance when the trainees are the personnel already have experience onboard a ship. Usually, the trainees in an ERM course will be watchkeeping officers or even chief engineers and they will probably critisize the training if the simulations are not realistic!

We have written the full specifications list for an engine room simulator, generalized with a focus on how it must help the instructors in the training. We went through each section of both the IMO STCW 2010 and IMO Model Course 2.07 and ensure the full list is at hand with the training in focus. Do not hesitate to request a copy if you are establishing an engine room training facility. We will be glad to help as trainers with ERS training experience of more than 20 years.

We should warn you that you must prepare the requirements for purchasing an Engine Room Simulator not the manufacturer.

3. Simulator Configurations

The training area must be organized with a focus into the training goals and objectives. The number of students to train at once is also an important element.

There are two examples of simulator configırations shown with the following figures. You must define your objectives first and ensure that a satisfactory number of stations and area is provided during the training.

    Terrestial and Underwater Radiated Noise from Powerships: Testing and Evaluation

    The increase in shipping activity globally has resulted in an increased awareness of impacts on the marine environment. Effects of noise pollution, especially on marine life, have become highly prominent. Marine life is extremely sensitive to noise pollution. Due to their extreme reliance on underwater sounds for basic life functions like searching for food and mate and an absence of any mechanism to safeguard them against it, underwater noise pollution disrupts marine life (Singla, 2020). In short, marine animals depend on sound to live, making and listening to it in various ways to perform various life functions (US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, 2014).

    Noise travels much more in water, covering greater distances than it would do on land while travelling through air. Underwater sound has both pressure and particle motion components and hearing can be defined as the relative contribution of each of these sound components to auditory detection (Popper AN, 2011). Sounds radiated from ships are among the underwater noise sources. Among shipborne Underwater Radiated Noise (URN) sources are the following:

    • Propeller’s rotational turn and the blades hitting to water flow lines
    • Propeller’s cavitation
    • Ship hull structure’s interaction water (fluid-structure interaction)
    • Mechanical noises from onboard machinery
    Underwater Radiated Noise and Sealife. Powerships and noise emittance. maritime studies
    Diagram Illustrating Three Significant Paths of Underwater Noise Generation from Machinery (NCE Report 07-001, 2007).

    Click here to read the report generated by NCE (NCE Report 07-001, 2007)

    All of these noise sources are radiated to underwater from ships, especially when the ship speed is at higher rates, i.e. above 15 knots.

    When a Powership is considered, out of the 4 aforementioned noises, only mechanical noise sources are of concern as there are no noises that emanate from the other three sources because the Powership is docked. Mechanical onboard noises are still of concern and therefore need to be evaluated and tested for the assessment of their potential negative effects to marine life.

    GDS Engineering R&D has the capability for measuring the underwater radiated noise and assessment of the results based on the effect to the sealife in the region.

    MIL-STD-810H Training: “Tailoring is Essential”

    MIL-STD-810H, US DOD Test Standard, starts with an important phrase at the beginning paragraph of each of the 28 test methods: “Tailoring is Essential.” It is therefore crucial to understand what this means and how to tailor the test methods for specific equipment, considering the platform, mission, and environmental requirements.

    GDS Engineering R&D provides MIL-STD-810H training online or onsite. Performing operations in various parts of the world, we have been providing this course to the defence industry strategists, leaders, program managers, projects managers, designers, and test engineers for more than 10 years. With long years of background in test projects in the USA and Turkey, Dr. Cicek, the main lecturer of this training, explains the tailoring concepts with specific examples.

    This course provides with information and knowledge of experience on how to develop Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) document and Lice Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP) to derive operational therefore test requirements for the Equipment Under Test (EUT). Understading the tailoring part of MIL-STD-810H is probably the most important aspect of this test standard training, due to the following reasons:

    • Developing a test plan for MIL-STD-810H equipment testing might be a confusing and time consuming process.
    • Training will provide an understanding into why and when CONOPS document is needed and how test requirements are established along with Mission and Environmental profiles of the EUT. These are all covered by both presentations and specific product examples through discussions during the training sessions.
    • In test method discussions, the instructor discuss “what items” (i.e. test levels) and “how” they will be tailored with specific examples.

    Test methods, i.e. temperature, humidity, temperature shock, require mission and environmental profiles are established for successfully determining the test levels, durations, and criteria for pass or fail.

    Consider the following for tailoring

    A Generalized Task Statement for Tailoring: Condider the environmental effects. An example list is provided with a list below. Develop exposure curves considering exposure scenarios. For this, use/develop CONOPS document and generate a Life Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP).

    • Environmental effects (temperature, humidity, icing, etc.) to the equipment in different operational modes: i.e. transportation, operation, and stand-by. Condider these effects with scenarious and develop exposure curves.
    • Equipment vulnarabilities under the environmental/operational conditions.
    • Effects caused by the platform operations (vibrations, shock, etc.)
    • The effect due to the platform environment; various conditions in the section the equipment will be operating. For example, the equipment might be exposed to fluid contamination in the section where it will be installed.
    • Equipment’s effect to the environment and systems (EMI, vibrations, fluid contamination, fire and flammability, etc.)
    • Consider risks of operational breakdowns with “what if” scenarios.
    GDS MIL-STD-810H Training: Scope and Contents
    • A good understanding of product testing in view of MIL-STD-810G/H and other relevant military standards.
    • Overview of Systems Engineering, V&V, and Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) document.
    • Establishment of Test Requirements and Test Plans.
    • Test Procedures, Scheduling, Implementation, and Test Reports.
    • Tests are covered in detail per MIL-STD-810. Altitude, temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, acceleration, salt fog, explosive atmosphere, etc..
    • Some of the MIL-STD-810H test methods are covered briefly; however, we ensure all questions are answered for each test method.
    • Cases studies, sample reports and discussions on issues.
    • Design issues and test failure discussions.
    • Risk management for test results and acceptance criteria.
    • Design Recommendations.

    Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) of Marine Devices and Electrical Equipment

    Devices used onboard a ship are exposed to harsh electromagnetic environments, whether in the propulsion, deck or bridge area of a ship. Testing of such devices for Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) is therefore very important. Otherwise, manufacturers can face difficulties during the certification and procurement stages.

    EMC testing and certification  services to ensure your marine products comply with relevant international standards and regulations is a MUST!

    GDS Engineering R&D does not perform these tests yet; however, have the information on design and test knowledge. The requirements include the international conventions as agreed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

    Currently, we have observed that these tests are conducted by reputable agencies like ELEMENT.

    The testing laboratories use the following standards to test the marine electronic, digital or electrical devices for certification to IMO SOLAS requirements, guidance, or recommendations:

    • IEC 60945
    • IEC 60533
    • Lloyds Register Test Spec No 1
    • DNV Certification Notes 2.4
    • IEC 60092

    Click this link to read more about ELEMENT’s advertisements.  Element also provides the following additional information in their website:

    Support and guidance from the initial design stage

    The use of composite materials in ship construction together with new radio technologies and high power electronics are changing the requirements and design goals that need to be achieved to ensure electromagnetic compatibility.  Element is well placed with our knowledge of both standards and the target environment to provide detailed guidance of the best compliance strategies to adopt for your marine products.

    CE Marking and Wheel Mark certification

    Element performs EMC testing in conjunction with climatic and environmental test requirements to meet dedicated marine standards and be compliant with CE marking legislation.
