Developed in response to existing naval requirements and incorporating advanced hull and propulsion technology, the Austal High Speed Vessel - Multipurpose (HSV-M) is an example of the potential effectiveness of high-speed vessels for future naval and other military roles. Austal's HSV-M design is based on the company's 331-ft. (101-m) catamaran platform which has proved to be a great success in both commercial and military roles, including the Theatre Support Vessel "WestPac Express" currently operating for the U.S. Marines.
The Austal HSV-M has been designed from the keel up to meet military requirements for a highly capable and multi-purpose platform. For example, the military vessel incorporates a significant increase in structural strength in the bow and tunnel areas, enabling it to operate at higher speeds in more extreme sea conditions. It can undertake a variety of roles with a high degree of interoperability, both with other vessels and port infrastructures.
Propelled by four steerable waterjets, and powered by four medium speed diesel engines, the Austal HSV-M is designed to sustain speeds in excess of 38 knots in Sea State 3 when loaded with 450 tons of troops and equipment, and carrying sufficient fuel for a range of 1.100 n.m. It has a range of over 4.000 n.m. at an average speed of 20 knots. The vehicle deck provides over 1.765 sq. m. of useable space and can carry a range of military hardware including Ml Abrams (M1A1) Main Battle Tanks. High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles IHMMWV). LARC and AAV amphibious vehicles. and semi-trailers.
Helicopters and cargo can also be transported on the vehicle deck.
