Abstract
The Innovative Naval Prototype Transformable Craft (T-Craft) is a novel United States Navy concept for a seabase-to-shore connector, operative in multiple modes. It can self deploy from an intermediate support base to the sea base and then be used as a high speed connector from the sea base to the shore, transporting wheeled and tracked vehicles and other heavy equipment and cargo through the surf zone and onto the beach,where it can discharge its cargo without the need for a port. T-Craft has b...
