Video demonstrating the design and capability advantages of the Stern Landing Vessel (SLV) design from Australian firm Sea Transport Solutions (STS). Adapted from successful commercial craft working in remote areas under difficult conditions, STS offers simple solutions for military challenges of the 21st century. The patented SLV was a result of focusing on possible answers to the operational problems of conventional landing craft. The proven successful solution to the landing craft was the Stern Landing Vessel. The triple screw, twin skeg hull form is the most viable answer for the amphibious support craft to succeed in the military’s operational envelope.
STS can and have successfully transformed commercial designs into a flexible and full functioned naval platform, which can be integrated easily into existing naval operations. Designed to commercial or naval rules, SLV’s can be built by any ship-yard able to construct commercial vessels to Class Rule standards. Small modifications to STS’s commercial ship designs can achieve 90% of the logistic requirements of many similar sized naval vessels at less than a quarter of the capital cost.
