In 2005, the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) #05-020 called for research and development efforts to design the Transformable Craft (T-Craft), a transport craft that will create a "game-changing" capability for the U.S. Navy's Seabasing concept. The TCraft is intended to advance the concepts of Operational Maneuver from the Sea (OMFTS) and Ship-to-Objective Maneuver (STOM). In this thesis, we examine various T-Craft operational and performance requirements using discrete event simulation modeling, statistical design of experiments, and robust analysis techniques. The model is used to investigate the rates at which the T-Craft/Sea base system, as specified in BAA #05-020, can deliver materiel to shore. We use robust analysis to evaluate the impact of both operational and performance design choices for the T-Craft across a spectrum of conflict conditions. The result is a set of design and policy recommendations that are targeted toward achieving mission success in a broad variety of used scenarios.
