ShipConstructor users Austal, Incat Tasmania Pty Ltd. and General Dynamics Bath Iron Works are among the down-selected finalists awarded a six-month, US$3 million preliminary design contract for the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) program.

Following the preliminary design phase, a detailed design and construction contract will be awarded to construct the first ship and options for a further seven ships set to be awarded between US FY09 and FY12.

The JHSV will reach speeds of 35-45 knots and undertake the rapid transit and deployment of army and marine corps company-sized units with their vehicles or reconfigure to become a troop transport for an infantry battalion. The JHSV will include a flight deck for helicopter operations and an off-load ramp that will allow vehicles to drive off the ship.
