This paper includes a description of the Systems Engineering approach to two representative marine propulsion systems utilizing gas turbine power. One approach deals with the Vosper VT-1 Hovercraft Propulsion engine manufacture and installation, the second deals with the much more detailed and sophisticated efforts required in producing and installing a complete marine propulsion system for a Navy Riverine assault craft. Preliminary scheduling to meet delivery dates, methods of part list procedures, testing philosophy, and methods of shipment are discussed, as well as customer liaison. The efforts of the Systems Engineering team are discussed in both cases pointing up the need for extremely close liaison in early vessel design stages to facilitate proper engine installation in the craft. Problems as they relate to earlier planning are included. The summary includes some actual vehicle test results.
