PROGRAM OVERVIEW

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION LHD 1 Class Amphibious Assault Ship (Multi-Purpose)

PURPOSE / MISSION “Big Deck” element of a three-ship Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG), Provides sustainable, forcible entry capability

  • PRIMARY: Embark, deploy and land elements of a Marine Landing Force in an assault by helicopters, landing craft, amphibious vehicles and combinations of these methods

  • SECONDARY / CONVERTIBLE: Sea control and power projection

    DESCRIPTION Eight-ship program. LHDs 1 through 7 are steam-powered. LHD 8 is a modified repeat of previous LHDs, with the elimination of steam plant and steam systems through the introduction of gas turbine propulsion, all-electric auxiliaries, 4160 VAC electrical distribution system and a computer-based Machinery Control System

SERVICE LIFE EXTENSION PROGRAM

  • REQUIREMENTS EVOLUTION

  • LCAC DESIGN STARTED MORE THAN 30 YEARS AGO

    • M60 Tank, Close-in operations, Limited Persian Gulf activity

  • LCAC Designed for 20 Year Life

    • Retirements start 2004 - Corrosion may accelerate

  • LCAC Designed for 60 Ton Load

    • M1A1 w/Mine plow = 72 Tons - Overload Condition

  • LCAC Designed for 24 NM / 90 Minute Mission

    • OMFTS/STOM requires greater ranges and durations

  • LCAC Designed for reduced capability > 80 Deg F.

    • Arabian Gulf Temperatures often exceed this limit

  • LCAC Designed for reduced capability > SS2

    • USMC must be able to carry out mission in SS3

  • LCAC Designed with 70’s Technology Electronics

    • Obsolete equipment

    • Stovepipe Architecture

  • LCAC Designed with Dead Reckoning Navigation System

    • Precision Navigation required

  • CNO LTR of May 95 requested NAVSEA PMS377 Perform a Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) Study

    • LCAC Begin Retirement in 2004 (Best Case)

    • Corrosion Damage Likely to Accelerate Retirements

    • Obsolete Electronics Are Becoming Less Reliable

    • Obsolete Electronics Are Becoming Unsupportable

    • Life Cycle Costs Projected to Rise Rapidly

    • LCAC Capability Not Keeping Pace With USMC

    • No Replacement LCAC Program Planned or Funded
