Abstract1The present proposal addresses those mission areas where excellent seakeeping is required in a small, high-speed craft that has substantial range. A preliminary and detail design will be performed for a 10-ton, carbon-fiber reinforced Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship (HYSWAS). The design will establish hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, structural, control and propulsion aspects of the demonstration craft. A drawing package will be prepared in anticipation of a Phase II construction effort.
