dc.description.abstractThis report explores the merits of light aircraft carrier (CVL) design implementation in future U.S. Naval Force composition and how set-based design (SBD) can be used to produce the ideal CVL design for a future maritime conflict scenario. The scenario is based on the Naval Postgraduate School’s Maritime War—2030 scenario written by Captain Jeff Kline. The size and expense of Nimitz and Ford class aircraft carriers represent a strategic vulnerability in future maritime conflict. Using smaller aircraft carriers will reduce the risk to grand strategy as well as life cycle and operating costs, provided a light aircraft carrier can facilitate the assorted rotary wing, fixed wing, electronic attack, and unmanned systems required for the conflict. SBD thinking can be used to produce a feasible design for a CVL by mapping a design space to meet the needs of a potential future conflict. This thesis examines the trade space in major design areas such as tonnage, aircraft launch method, propulsion, and performance in order to illustrate the merits of SBD in designing naval assets for a future force.en_US
