Abstract
The QED team's design approach comprises a rapidly deployable breakwater, causeway and anchoring system. The study focuses on the systems integration of these elements with emphasis on delivery means and installation to meet the 48 hour readiness objective. This study builds on the QED team's experience designing, fabricating, deploying and testing similar systems over the past fifteen years. The output of the Phase I study includes a defined CONOPS for the total system, conceptual designs of the primary components and procedures for storing, handling, deploying and recovering components at sea and/or from a shore site considering a range of environmental conditions and littoral situations. The conceptual designs will be supported by hydrodynamic and engineering analysis of various system configurations considering extreme environmental conditions and mooring loads. Specific research and evaluation will be conducted on unique materials for components including marine growth resistant elastomer coated fabrics, advanced fabric bonding and module-to-module attachment techniques. The Phase I tasks deliverable items include a CONOPS study report, a preliminary system concept study report and a final study report, each supported by oral presentations. A Phase I option to prepare test plans for Phase II is also included in the proposal.
