The article reports on the Transformable Craft, or T-Craft, being developed by the U.S. Office of Naval Research. This emerging T-Craft technology will be able to deliver the goods from heavy combat hardware to medical supplies like never before. This concept of a ship can travel far, meet up with the sea base, take cargo in a high-sea state, and then deliver that cargo up to the beach at 40 knots, then proceed to drier ground, with no port facilities.
