USS America Designed with ShipConstructor

Monday, August 17, 2009

The USS America (LHA 6), designed with ShipConstructor Software, will be the most technologically advanced amphibious warship to date according to U.S. Navy Capt. Robert Howell, Executive Officer and Director of Contracts, Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Gulf Coast.

Howell made this observation at the recent keel laying ceremony for the ship in Pascagoula. This innovative vessel was designed by Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding Gulf Coast using ShipConstructor, a detail design and production software program for shipbuilding and offshore structures.

The USS America will feature a propulsion system which uses two induction-type auxiliary propulsion motors powered from the ship’s electrical grid. Instead of a well deck for storing smaller vessels, the USS America has more space for aviation components. Other features include a reconfigurable command and control complex, a hospital facility and numerous aviation support spaces.
