Abstract:

This report provides a review of the principles and research background, the present state of the art and the experience that has been gained with air cushion vehicles. It attempts to forecast the future trends in development. Their probable military applications are outlined. It is recommended that they should be the subject of further study and consultation within NATO and that early consideration should be given to formulating military requirements as a guide to further development and research.
