Abstract:

Three basic systems are examined on a conceptual qualitative basis. Relative advantages and disadvantages are discussed. The latest development progress of the component parts are delineated and the prospects for successful development are projected. A baseline for comparison on the basis of cost acquisition, maintenance and manning, fuel costs, tactical capability and projected reliability will be the SPRUANCE class destroyers with their present propulsion system replaced by an electrical system.
