Abstract
Under the Phase I program the"Quantum Engineering Design, Inc"(QED) team comprising, QED as prime contractor,"Marinette Marine Corporation"(MMC),"Alion Science and Technology Corporation"(AST) and"Kepner Plastics Fabricators, Inc"(KPF) as subcontractors, submitted a Final Report which defined a broad approach for meeting the need for rapidly installed breakwaters and causeways to emplace a temporary port in a littoral area. Reference 1 also included a description of ways and means of providing protection and sea-state mitigation for offshore Sea Basing operations using adaptations of the proposed rapid port enhancement system components. In addition, a method of enhancing ship-to-shore logistics throughput employing a combination of these components along with the independently developed wheeled version of the"Container Lifting and Maneuvering System"(C-LMS) was also presented. The overall system concept was called the"Advanced Breakwater And Causeway Ultramarine System"(ABACUS). The Phase II program is designed to test and evaluate these systems at large model scale and where appropriate, at full-scale.
