Follow the steps below to download the model and data.

Step 1: Complete OSCAM Ship Training

OSCAM Ship training courses are held periodically at the Washington Navy Yard, and offer a comprehensive overview of OSCAM Ship, including the Data Management Tool and Parametric Costing Tool. The course covers the methodology used in developing the model, advice on sourcing data and extensive hand-on experience in using the tools.

If you are interested in attending an OSCAM Ship training course, please complete one of our training registration forms. Once processed, we will contact you to confirm the date of the next course. Training is limited to those either employed by the US government, or contractors sponsored by the US government.

Register for Training

If you have already taken the training and are a Registered User, go to Step 2 below.

Step 2: Download OSCAM Ship

Once you have a username and password, click below to download OSCAM Ship, which will be in the form of a password protected zip file. The files can be unzipped and used directly without needing to be installed. The files can also be copied onto a CD and run directly from the CD.

Note that some PCs will not allow .CHM help files to be run when they have been downloaded from the internet. If this occurs you will see the contents structure in the left pane but will see a "Navigation to the webpage was cancelled" in the right pane. See Unblocking CHM Files for help on resolving this.

Step 3: Download Historical Datasets

The OSCAM Ship Historic Databases (derived from VAMOSC data) may be downloaded in a password protected zip file format. The datasets can be used with OSCAM Ship v8.2 or later. When the zip file has been downloaded, extract the contents of the zip file to your hard disk into an appropriate directory.

User Guides

User guides are available to support the historical datasets and the PCT cost estimating relationships (CERs).
