Focused on Total Ownership Cost

The central team goal is delivering the lowest total ownership cost to the Navy, including lower acquisition, maintenance and related costs throughout the 30-year projected life of the SSC. MMC’s lean manufacturing experience and rigorous standards of quality control — down to the last bolt — ensure a cost-effective, high-performance craft designed for the rugged conditions and extreme environments in which it will operate. Innovations in corrosion control and lessons learned in LCAC maintenance translate into longer life and lower costs.
