Abstract
The Personnel Transport Module (PTM) is a modularized structure developed by the Navy to increase the capability of the Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) to transport personnel and protect occupants from the elements inherent in an amphibious environment. Improvements in the durability, corrosion resistance, weight, acoustic insulation, and life cycle cost of the PTM are desired to enhance overall LCAC performance. The proposed research program will apply innovative composite materials and manufacturing processes, unique sandwich panel constructions and all-composite, assembly-friendly structural joint concepts to achieve an improved PTM design with multifunctional performance. The Phase I research will demonstrate economic and technical feasibility for a prototype PTM concept to be followed by more detailed design, analysis and testing in Phase II.
