Abstract

The Phase II work proposes to extend the Phase 1 work to create a fully autonomous and modular sUSV L&R payload for MUSV and OUSV.  The modular payload system will be capable of launching, recovering, and stowing Class 1 (Very Small) USVs from a standard 20 foot ISO container footprint which includes a davit, hoist interface/cradle, and one Class 1 USV stowage location.  The Phase II work proposes to extend the Phase 1 work to create a fully autonomous and modular sUSV L&R payload for MUSV and OUSV.  The modular payload system will be capable of launching, recovering, and stowing Class 1 (Very Small) USVs from a standard 20 foot ISO container footprint which includes a davit, hoist interface/cradle, and one Class 1 USV stowage location.  The work naturally extends from the Phase I Topic N181-056, Adaptive Boat Launch and Recovery System (ABLARS), MAPC developed the concept for a an adaptable boat launch and recovery system that: Is adjustable to fit a range of small vessels Is highly reliable with minimal maintenance requirement Reduces the manning required to operate/adjust/maintain Can be configured for a variety of existing ships (e.g. DDG-1000, LCS) and future ships such as MUSV.
