US NAVY SEA SHADOW - STEALTH - IX-529

In 1993 the US Navy de-classified and disclosed publicly its A-Frame SWATH vessel known as the IX-529 'Sea Shadow' built by Lockheed Martin. The photo above shows the 'stealth' vessel in San Francisco Bay underway at dusk to participate in events associated with Fleet Battle Experiment-Echo. The 160 ft long craft was designed as a test platform to research advanced technologies in propulsion, automation, sea-keeping abilities, and reduced radar signature. The angled sides of the craft extend below the waterline to torpedo-shaped hulls which provide the vessel with exceptional stability in heavy weather. It is capable of operating in Sea State 5 (extremely rough) conditions. The angled sides also provide radar reflection and structural integrity for the 70 ft wide craft. Although the craft performs well in the open sea, its 14 ft draft limits its harbour manuverability and access to many harbours. Full speed for the vessel is around 13 knots. Research gathered from the Sea Shadow has led Lockheed to further advanced SWATH and SLICE designs.
