iii. lappuse - As our potential enemies continue to improve their capabilities over, under, and on the sea, the importance of reducing our dependence on logistic support becomes increasingly critical. Certain cost effectiveness comparisons were made within the Defense Department and cited to support the contention that the advantages of nuclear propulsion in surface warships are not particularly significant. These studies, however, contain a fundamental weakness that, in the opinion of the Joint Committee, negates...
246. lappuse - If I can be of further assistance to you in this matter, please do not hesitate to call on me. Sincerely yours, CB JONES, Rear Admiral, US Navy, Chief of Legislative Affairs. Costs of nuclear propulsion in the "Enterprise...

iv. lappuse - Department and cited to support the contention that the advantages of nuclear propulsion in surface warships are not particularly significant. These studies, however, contain a fundamental weakness that, in the opinion of the Joint Committee, negates their validity. The comparisons cited were based on the assumption that in wartime, logistic support forces will be able to operate unhampered and without losses as they do in peacetime. "We must plan for time of crisis.
197. lappuse - A TREATISE ON NUCLEAR PROPULSION IN SURFACE SHIPS Prepared at the direction of the Chief of Naval Operations by the Chairman, Ship Characteristics Board to provide background information for statements and discussion, April 5, 1961 PAKT I.
33. lappuse - Mr. Chairman and members of the committee. I am very happy to be here today and to have the opportunity of presenting our case for restoration of our budget to the President's figure.
iii. lappuse - Nuclear propulsion has the fundamental advantage of permitting our warships to go anywhere in the world, to deliver their combat load and to return all without logistic support. Oil-fired warships must be refueled every few days. This requires a vulnerable, worldwide distribution system to provide fuel oil for conventional ships.
231. lappuse - ASW escort be provided in the conventional manner. or should it envision added emphasis on nuclear submarines? How is replenishment of aviation fuel and ordnance to be accomplished ? Should the underway replenishment ships also be nuclear? How should the Navy be d"eployed around the world ? Would nuclear power speak for a modification of the present concept of the 1st, 2d, 6th, and 7th Fleets? Realizing that we will have a large number of conventionally powered surface vessels in the inventory for...
245. lappuse - As a general guide, I am interested in achieving the most efficient possible naval forces, defining efficiency as achieving the most beneficial military results for a given expenditure. If nuclear propulsion permits an increase in this efficiency, then advantage should be taken of it.
