Abstract
This project proposes an unmanned semi-submersible surface craft with an innovative wave piercing, planing and ballasted hull form that builds upon a system in advanced development for ONR incorporating many of the key features necessary for persistent and low-visibility operations. This basic concept will be tailored to the mission requirements of the sponsor resulting in a robust versatile semi-submersible platform. MCM and ISR missions are envisioned, but additional missions requiring unmanned persistent and/or low visible operations can be accommodated. Performance analysis will be assessed and evaluated with respect to mission requirements. The concept design will be further evaluated for effectiveness in reduced visibility, low radar cross-section, and IR and acoustic radiation. The effectiveness of the self- ballasting feature will also be evaluated.
