Abstract:

This report documents the feasibility study of a new Auxiliary Submarine Rescue ASR ship Class. The study resulted in descriptions of feasible ship alternatives that can be compared to demonstrate the effects of capability, manning type, and construction standards on ship characteristics. Two basic levels of capability were investigated 1 a small ship capable of escorting submarines during test and trials and 2 a larger ship capable of escort operations plus Submarine Rescue Chamber SRC operations. Military and civilian manning as well as Military and commercial construction standards were considered. Author
