The report presents the results of a parametric study of high speed support amphibians. The vehicle types considered include planing hulls, hydrofoils, hydrokeels, captured air bubble craft and catamarans. The parameters considered include vehicle dimensions, speed, range, payload and machinery characteristics. Emphasis was placed on hydrodynamic characteristics and waterborne performance. The parametric results were obtained through the use of computer aided conceptual design models for each of the vehicle types. Appendices are included which present the background data used in the conceptual design models. Author
