Abstract
As a means to improve the operational capability of the CVN's escorts, in this project, we study factors that could increase carrier strike groups (CSGs) efficiency conducting transits. We specifically analyze implementation of the Transit Fuel Planner (TFP) and transit speed limits. Increasing transit fuel efficiency enables additional hours on station, which could improve operational range and effectiveness. Based on our interviews with Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs), we also look into CSG operations because their input reveals the potential for substantial fuel savings in this area with minimal changes.
