Description
 
The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) was intended to be a low-cost surface combatant that uses innovative operational concepts, such as minimal crew size, to lower operations and support costs. In 2013, the Navy deployed USS Freedom, one of two LCS variants, to Singapore to prove its concept, demonstrate operational capabilities, and collect data on the ship's manning, training, maintenance, and logistics needs. This report analyzed the Navy's sustainment plans for its LCS program including lessons from the USS Freedom deployment. It addresses (1) the benefits and limitations of the operational data that have been collected on LCS ships; (2) the extent to which the Navy has evaluated risk in its operational support and sustainment concepts for LCS; and (3) how LCS life-cycle cost estimates compare with those for other surface-ship classes. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
