Abstract:

This report presents an evaluation of three proposed recovery systems for emergency stopping of air cushion vehicles during docking within LSD Landing Ship Dock craft. The results of a trade-off study indicate that a barricade net, coupled with energy absorbing wire rope is the optimum system for the scheduled amphibious assault craft program demonstration tests, as well as for advanced development.
