Abstract : The U.S. Coast Guard (CG) Research & Development Center (R&DC) evaluated the U.S. Navy's Sea Fighter vessel (FSF-1) for potential applicability for CG missions. For this evaluation, the project team used a combination of engagement modeling and simulation (M&S), human systems integration (HSI) modeling, and Sea Fighter crew and shiprider insights. Specifically, the R&DC evaluated four Sea Fighter attributes that could significantly impact CG mission effectiveness: A maximum rate of speed (50 kts); multiple deployable surface and air assets; small crew size (26); and a reconfigurable mission bay (accommodates 12 mission modules). This report analyzes and discusses the findings of these evaluations, draws conclusions from the findings, and makes recommendations concerning future application of Sea Fighter's organic capabilities. Additional technical information that was developed in conjunction with this evaluation can be found in appendices B-E attached in electronic format.
