The U.S. Navy’s first trimaran littoral combat ship Independence (LCS 2) is undergoing builder’s trials to test the vessel’s propulsion, communications, navigation and core mission systems. The LCS 2 is a fast, 418 ft aluminum trimaran with superior seakeeping and aviation capability as a result of its long, sleek central hull and smaller side hulls. This innovative warship was designed and built by Austal on behalf of the General Dynamics Littoral Combat Ship team. Austal is the world leader in high speed vessel design and the company relied on ShipConstructor® Software for 3D modeling and the creation of DWG-based production packages for this vessel.
