Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Introduces Database for Shock Qualification
Shock Qualification

Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division (NSWCPD) and partners from the U.S. Navy have created a new online database called "eForms" that features content on equipment shock resistance. NSWC worked with Naval Sea Logistics Center to develop the database.

The eForms database's electronic shock module will facilitate the management of information that helps the Navy determine the shock qualification of certain equipment, Naval Sea Systems Command said Friday. NSWCPD leads the efforts to qualify equipment for shock resistance. The Navy uses shock resistance data to conclude whether a piece of equipment can survive in an event of an underwater explosion.

“For shipboard equipment installation to be authorized, it must meet applicable shock requirements, accomplished either by qualification or with a shock deficiency correction plan (SDCP); eForms allows for both, providing a ‘one-stop shop’ with eShock and eSDCP,” said Christina Backes, engineering manager for surface ships shock certification at NSWCPD.

Defense organizations may access eForms' electronic shock module here.
