Textron has won a $84 million modification contract for construction of Landing Craft, Air Cushions (LCACs) 102 and 103 under the Ship to Shore Connector (SSC) program, US DoD said in a statement.

The SSC Program is the functional replacement for the existing fleet of LCAC vehicles, which are nearing the end of their service life.

The SSC program involves air cushion vehicles designed for a 30-year service life. The SSC mission is to land surface assault elements in support of operational maneuver from the sea, at over-the-horizon distances, while operating from amphibious ships and mobile landing platforms.

SSC provides increased performance to handle current and future missions, as well as improvements which will increase craft availability and reduce total ownership cost.
