The primary missions for the LCS include countering diesel submarine threats, littoral mine threats, and surface threats, such as small surface craft attacks, to assure maritime access for Joint forces. The underlying strength of the LCS lies in its innovative design approach, applying modularity for operational flexibility. Fundamental to this approach is the capability to rapidly install interchangeable mission packages (MPs) onto the seaframe. Each mission package can be quickly installed aboard an LCS to fulfill a specific mission, and then be uninstalled, maintained, and upgraded at a Mission Package Support Facility (MPSF) for future use aboard any LCS seaframe.The work activities will be performed in Orlando, Fla., and are expected to be completed in January 2018.[mappress]Source: Naval Today Staff, January 28, 2013 View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: Cubic Simulation Systems Lands Multi-Million Contracts (USA) last_img
