As budgets have become more and more restrictive, and navies worldwide rely more and more on commercial practices and standards for the core of their warship designs, there has been a continuing trend away from traditional naval design approaches, and towards a baseline centered in common international requirements. Factors such as acquisition reform initiatives of the 1990's, and a decreased emphasis on national military design documents, have navies worldwide relying on a more global approach to design and acquisition through instruments and organizations such as ASTM F25 Committee, ISO TC8, NATO's standard ANEP 77, and Classification Society Rules and Guides such as the ABS Rules for Building and Classing High Speed Naval Craft (HSNC) and International Naval Ship Guide. This course will provide a broad overview to two ABS rule sets and the NATO standard.
