T-AKE and T-AOE(X) will support combatants and other ships within the Seabase.Joint Operating Area
4 MPF(F) Transformational Capability No secure beach or host nation requiredNo “iron mountain” ashore to protectAssembles troops & equipment at sea in SS3/4Selectively offloadable for different missionsSustainment and reconstitution of fighting forces from the sea
5 MPF(F) Technologies - Integrated Landing Platform/Mobile Landing Platform Operate in Sea State 3 – 4Provide cargo transfer between ship and surface craftProvide interface for variety of surface craftDevelop ship roll mitigation systemDevelop organic and self-deploying systemUtilize dynamic positioningAccomplish at-sea demonstrations to validate systems and prove operational proceduresFacilitate personnel transferProvide surface craft services
6 MPF(F) Technologies - Skin-to-Skin Develop organic mooring systemOperate in Sea State 3 - 5Develop ship roll mitigation systemDevelop ship motion prediction systemProvide ISO container and vehicle transfer between shipsDevelop crane load motion control systemFacilitate personnel transferAccomplish series of at-sea demonstrations to validate systems and prove operational procedures
7 MPF(F) Technologies - Automated Cargo Handling Facilitate selective offload of cargoOperate in Sea State 5Develop 20 foot ISO container stuff/ unstuffAccomplish at-sea demonstrations to validate systems and prove operational procedures
8 LEWIS & CLARK CLASS (T-AKE 1) Primary products are ammunition, food, fuel, repair parts, ship store items, and other consumables to station ships and other naval warfare forces.Lead ship was awarded to National Steel and Shipbuilding Company with options for eleven follow ships.
10 Fast Combat Support Ship T-AOE(X) Large combat logistics ships with speed to keep up with the Carrier Strike GroupProvides fuel, ammunitions, and storesReceives products via UNREP with shuttle ships and redistributes to the CVBGReduces vulnerability/maximizes time on line of serviced ships by limiting alongside timeCapable of simultaneous CONREP & VERTREPMSC CIVMAR crew with USN MILDETBuilt to commercial standardsFY09 Lead ShipAoA recently commenced
11 HIGH SPEED SEALIFT Key connector concept for inter-theater lift Future programKey connector concept for inter-theater liftTransport of non-deployable helicopters, troops and small amount of cargoSpeed required knotsKey technologies - skin to skin, propulsion systems
12 TSV/HSC ProgramTSV / HSV – intratheater connector to be developed as a joint procurementCan move equipment, troops, rolling stock, containers and palletsShallow draft - better port access than larger shipsBeaching & non-beaching variants will be consideredSelf deploying over long distances (without cargo)Commercial standardsKey technologies - propulsion systems, lightweight structures
