My third year undergraduate design. The undergraduate frigate design exercise is relatively simple, with the weapons and machinery being specified. This vessel is broadly similar to the RN Type 22 Batch III frigates.

The icebreaking Canadian Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship concept. This is the illustrative design, possibly developed by the AOPS PMO, which accompanied the press release outlining the award of the DELMS contract to BMT FTL.

A design developed by the UCL Design Research Centre to meet the published requirements for the US Navy's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).

I wondered what RN vessels would look like in Victorian navy colours. The result? Win.

"DEH, A High Endurance Escort Hydrofoil for the Fleet", by R Aroner and RM Hubbard, Boeing, AIAA Paper # 74-311, from 1974. Baseline ASW version.

From the same paper, a Helicopter ASW variant, with a collapsible hangar for a Seasprite. TT firing through the transom, and two Harpoon on the port side of the superstructure.

The Mobile Continuity Force, a group of nuclear-propelled vessels intended to permit construction post-nuclear war, which they would survive by hiding in the southern oceans.

A design for a representative 7000te Future Surface Warship, developed by the UCL DRC for studies into the layout impacts of all-electric propulsion.

A Trimaran Small Waterplane Area Central Hull (TriSWACH) frigate design produced by UCL MSc students for their ship design exercise, based on the TriSWACH concept proposed by Prof. Victor Dubrovsky.

A speculative conversion of the Type 23 ASW / GP frigate into a proto-LCS. Seawolf is replaced by RAM, with a Netfires VLS installed in the Seawolf VLS silo. Handling equipment for 21 inch UUVs is installed aft, along with additional boat stowage for USVs and UAV stowage in a converted hangar.

An impression of the outline frigate design proposed by Prof. Dubrovsky. In this case, the TriSWACH vessel carries similar equipment to the Neustrashimy class frigates.

The FLAUNT - a giant seaplane equipped with an extendable float allowing it to operate as a spar buoy. In this case, the FLAUNT is configured as a Harrier carrier for 6 Sea Harriers.
