Matched-Speed Aircraft Landings and Take-Offs ...
The low drag of the HARTH ship allows for very fast surface speeds. With such routine speed capability, the Hydro Lance ship can travel at a 'match-speed' of a landing jet aircraft. The capability effectively stretches the 'landing strip' to an infinite length, allowing for smaller carriers doing the same job. The unique ultra-stability of these HARTH ships provides for a landing deck that is free of pitch, heave, roll, sway or yaw. The full flight control and power of the aircraft is maintained until after jet's wheels kiss the deck's landing zone. 'Specially designed HARTH systems control ground-effects, then captures the landing gear while other systems afford the safe exit of the pilot to debriefing and the safe storage of the aircraft. This capability affords such landings and take-off 's even in, and through, elevated sea-states. Several aircraft or drones may land or take-off simultaneously from where they stand.

MSAC HARTH Cargo-Aircraft Carrier...
Above: HARTH MSAC Cargo-Aircraft Carrier
This fast MSAC (Matched Speed Air Craft) carrier, designed for cargo aircraft, answers forward logistic planning problems. Elevators accommodate these large aircraft to the main deck for cargo staging, maintenance and freight exchanges between aircraft. The vessel is able to accelerate to aircraft take-off and landing speeds making touch down gentle and safer. With landing gear captured, the aircraft can be lowered to the main deck. These ships do not experience heave, roll, pitch, sway or yaw. Some aircraft are able to take off from this flight deck without the MSAC capabilities. The vessels high speed capabilities further provide rapid deployment to any required world-wide coordinates.
Hydro LanceTM HARTHTM Ultra-Stable Vehicle Transfer Platform
The above Hydro Lance HARTH Vehicle Transfer Platform features ultra-stability as a stable platform capable of transferring heavy vehicles from unstable littoral RO-RO ships to an unstable barge (left side of image) or landing craft. The stable ramps also feature a passive deck interface system and a second telescoping section accounting for minor station keeping problems associated with the conventional unstable ships and barges. The stable ramp is mounted to a roller bearing supported turn-table which once aligned with the ramp or deck entry of the conventional vessels, then is allowed free positioning to account misalignment and station drift of old-technology conventional ships and barges. A combination of these design features including free ramp hinging account for the differences of stability and the roll, pitch, heave, yaw and sway of conventional ocean vessels. The HARTH Vehicle Transfer Platform and the unstable conventional RO-RO ship and barge are shown in a Force 5 Scale Beaufort ocean. The result is solving a problem for being able to transfer heavy vehicles outside the breakwater or in outer sections of a port facility. This platform is self-powered mobile and can be designed for operation in higher sea-states. Most optimally would be that all interfacing ships are Hydro Lance ships whereas all would be stable platforms making simple ramps between vessels for vehicle or cargo transfer completely stable in elevated seas.

the HARTH Smaller 'CORSAIR CLASS' CARRIERS ...
Above: The smaller HARTH Super-Speed Corsair-Class, Drone and/or Aircraft Carrier... at 2,000 Gross Tons with Speed capabilities above 130 Knots, these platforms may be finished as a DRONE Carrier, forward command center or even a Cutter. The matched-speed of this vessel, to landing aircraft provides an 'infinitely long flight deck' for matched-speed landings - and take-offs. The landing gear wheels, land-based or Naval, kiss the ultra-stable flight-deck for gear capture. This is also an ideal platform for the Cross Bow study Program. Such drones or aircraft are at flight speed on the flight deck when taking off; the pilot or operator could pull the aircraft straight up to the skies, if desired. Our design team can incorporated visual, audio, RF and IR stealth capabilities. The HARTH Technology means no bow wake and no roll, pitch, heave, yaw, sway, hog or sag of the ship ... at speed in and through elevated sea states.

Hydro Lance Sea-TrainTM
Above: Hydro Lance Sea-TrainTM based in the HARTH Technology is a high-speed trans-ocean surface transport system. Designed for stable 80 Knot speeds through all levels of the Beaufort Scale, this assembled system can efficiently transport 450,000 tons of ore, cargo, equipment, bulk, fuels, troops or civilians worldwide with ultra-stability, and safety at very high speeds. Unique inventory deployment affords deliveries to multiple destinations. Further program or technical information is available only with a properly executed Confidentiality Non-Circumvention Agreement in place with the Hydro Lance Corporation.
Rescue and Recovery Heavy Lift / Transport Ship ...
Above: Unparalled HARTH stability, rescue and recovery technologies provides for heavy-lift ships to be fully operational in elevated sea-states. Shown is the ocean-recovery of the Orion capsule of the NASA Constellation Project, upon return to earth. 'Certainly a critical, but light-load for this heavy-lift vessel. The cross-sectional look at this heavy-lift vessel demonstrated the safety and speed of rescue in critical conditions. The vessels 80 Knot speed rating through elevated sea-states, provides for first-response to deviations of targeted set-down location coordinates.
