OCLC Number: (OCoLC)503347731 Subject: Littoral combat ships -- United States -- Costs. Excerpt: ... $ 61.7 million per seaframe annually to operate and support both the 13 seaframes and mission packages. For the seaframes, the Navy's 2009 estimate of operating and support costs 14 projected a total of $ 64.1 billion based on a 25-year service life. According to Navy officials, this estimate assumed a nearly even split of the two seaframe types as the seaframes have different operating and support cost profiles. However, the Navy has announced that it will choose one of the two seaframe designs in 2010 so the associated operating and support costs will likely change depending on the design selected. For the mission packages, operating and support costs could total $ 20.8 billion. The Navy provided us with its estimate of the average annual operating and support costs of each mission package. Therefore, to calculate the total operating and support costs, we multiplied the average annual estimates by the number of packages of each type with an expected 30-year service life. The Navy's most recent estimates were prepared to support the fiscal year 2010 budget but did not include the antisubmarine package since its contents are under development; therefore, we used the prior year's estimate to calculate the operating and support costs for this mission package. 13 Since significant LCS operational capabilities are derived from the mission packages - the ability to counter mines, submarines, and small surface boats, and to conduct maritime security operations - and since the mission packages are part of the LCS program, we calculated the average annual operating and support cost by dividing the $ 84.8 billion by the number of seaframes and the expected seaframe service life. 14 The Navy can expect to pay operating and support costs until the last LCS is retired. Therefore, if the last LCS is purchased in 2025, then, based on the 25-year expected service life of each...
