Sea train
« on: February 13, 2018, 01:26:57 pm »
Hi

On the International Hydrofoil society I found the following concept: "Connectorless Seatrain for High Speed, High Payload, and Austere Port Access". I attach the link below.

http://168.144.200.155/01_Mtg_Pres%20dnloads/090122%20meeting/Karafiath%20Connectorless%20Seatrain%20IHS%20Presentation%20.pdf

and a related one: The SES - sea train

they appear to be related or applicable to sea basing and are conceptual studies

best

Very interesting, thanks.  Have any such designs every been used for oceangoing freighters or landing craft in actual practice?
