Abstract
The topic stated objective is the development of innovative approaches to provide in-situ hull form augmentations to the existing ships and craft to allow for increased speed without a significant reduction in payload capacity. The proposed project will accomplish this by implementing an innovative air cavity system (ACS), Bow Fairing, and propulsion changes to the LCU 1600, thereby converting it into a 20 knot LCU 1600. We are also suggesting an optional beachability capability improvement to enable feet-dry shoreside on/off-loading. The prototype with these extended capabilities is herein referred to as the LCU-X.
