Hovercraft Sea Systems Test Case-LCAC

This test case is based on the Hovercraft Sea Systems Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the LCAC. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the LCAC program. No attempt has been made to simulate the LCAC design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the hovercraft sea system template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known naval program.
