In battle scenarios, Navy Units survival is highly dependent on the speed and quality of decisions taken in the different functional areas onboard. In this context, decision support systems can play a vital role in the decision process enhancement. Within the Portuguese Navy a fuzzy decision support system is under development for shipboard weapon engineering equipment repair priorities management under battle conditions. The system is currently being tested and used in the weapon section base of "Vasco da Gama" Class Frigates, providing support related with faults detected in the equipment subsystems which are part of the SEWACO combat system. In this paper we present the system and discuss the fuzzy multiple attribute decision-making model adopted.
