However, the Maritime Administration re- cently upgraded its National Defense Reserve Fleet. It is clear that the United States requires a responsive sealift capability that can transport all types of unit equipment and sustainment in a timely manner if it is to exercise its military role.

Developing the new ships will take anywhere from three to five years, Searles said. But in the meantime, the Navy plans to buy used ships off the open market and modify them for.

The FECs budget reflects continued investments in energy focused efficiency. The commercial sealift industry is breaking free of the constraints of traditional hull designs that characterize present vessels.

Several alternative designs are being developed to fulfill the need for high speed, heavy payload capable, long distance transportation. One such design, FASTSHIP is thought to be capable of speeds of 45 knots, carrying.
