Abstract

This proposal defines a pathway to safely carry and dispense gasoline and other highly volatile fuels within enclosed spaces aboard Navy Ships, and in particular, the Littoral Combat Ship. This is necessary to accommodate the Combat Rubber Raiding Craft(CRRC) employed by SEAL detachments as well as other small craft used by Marines and Special Forces. Building on the design baseline of Phase I, this Phase II will expand the potential design application to other ships in addition to the LCS as well as other crafts in addition to the CRRCs.
