Joint High Speed Vessel Milestone Reached

Austal has taken a significant step towards commencing construction of the US Department of Defense’s next generation multi-use platform – the Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) – after successfully completing the Initial Critical Design Review (ICDR).

During the ICDR, Austal provided a comprehensive summary of the critical areas of the JHSV design for US Navy approval. The successful completion of the ICDR means Austal is now proceeding towards the project’s next critical milestone – the Final Critical Design Review.

US Navy Strategic and Theater Sealift Program Management Office Program Manager, Capt. George Sutton, commented, “The Austal JHSV program team performed well during the review process. I look forward to working with them towards the successful completion of the next critical milestone of this program.”
