dc.description.abstractA Comparative design study of ten conventional and nuclear-powered fast attack submarines is performed. Data sources are limited to those available in the open literature. The analysis is confined to those submarines which are of the greatest interest and for which enough design information is available to conduct an adequate study. The data for each of the selected submarines is then parameterized, analyzed, and compared on the basis of design and military capabilities. The design philosophy and top level requirement of each submarine is then inferred from its naval architecture and military capabilities. It is concluded that automation of systems will allow a reduction of crew size, which then permits a larger battery and greater provision, fuel and weapons loadouts. This will lead to greater combat effectiveness due to increased range, attack flexibility, speed, and weapons delivery potential.
