Included in Phase I will be the development of design changes, material specifications, as well as the planning for the Phase II conversion effort, effective immediately.

The conversion encompasses added living quarters for 50 additional personnel, changing of the stern ramp to an in-water ramp and upgrading of the helicopter landing deck to an all-weather flight deck.
