Abstract:

This report contains the results of tactical trials conducted on USS EDENTON ATS-1. The trials consisted of turning circles, acceleration, deceleration, spiral, swinging tests and astern controllability tests conducted at a displacement of 3,200 tons and 0 degrees trim angle. Measurements were made to determine tactical diameters, stopping distances, directional stability, controllability, and maneuvering characteristics. The results show EDENTON has normal turning characteristics, and the ship is directionally stable when operating at 11 knots. The bow thruster is effective in maneuvering the ship when operating at speeds from dead in the water to 6 knots.
