Cost benefit and capability analysis of Sea-Base connectors
Dowd, Justin A.
MetadataShow full item record
S) cost of the connectors studied is used along with specific performance data such as maximum payload (in tons), maximum speed (in knots) when loaded to maximum payload, and maximum range (in nautical miles) when operated at maximum payload and maximum speed to obtain a number of comparative metrics. These metrics include, but are not limited to tons per hour (tph), cost per ton ($/ton) and cost per ton per nautical mile ($/ton-NM). A number of air and surface connectors were considered consisting of both legacy platforms in use today as well a number of future concept platforms currently being developed. The surface connectors considered are the Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC), the Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC), Joint High-Speed Vessel (JHSV), Landing Craft Utility Replacement (LCU(R)) and the Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector (UHAC). The air connectors considered are the MV-22 Osprey, the CH-53E Sea Stallion, the Hybrid Ultra-Large Aircraft (HULA) and the Hybrid Very-Large Aircraft (HVLA).
