EPS Supports Navy SCC Cost Study

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

EPS Corporation has been awarded a $200,000 contract to support the Ship to Shore Connector (SCC) cost study for the Department of Navy. The SSC is intended to provide the functional replacement for the Navy’s Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) hovercraft currently in service. To meet the mission requirements for the SSC, this next -generation platform must be designed, developed and produced to reduced operations and maintenance costs, and improved reliability and maintainability. EPS Navy Systems an EPS business unit has assembled a team of subject matter experts to perform the studies required and apply its hovercraft design and construction experience to the mission set by the office of the  Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). Over the 60-day study EPS will prepare and supply the Department of Navy with engineering requirements for repair, replacement, and integration of highly efficient advanced lightweight Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) laminates using glass, Kevlar and carbon fiber for the SSC functional baseline design, specifically in the area of shafting, propulsor blades, shroud, lift van volute, bow thruster nozzle, rudders, and FOD screens structural components. Furthermore, EPS engineers will assess SSC parts support for these composite components throughout the life cycle of the program, as well as required technical assistance pertaining to parts support.
