The USS Makin Island is the first large-deck assault ship in the U.S. Navy to be powered by a combination of gas turbines and electric motors. The new propulsion system considerably reduces fuel consumption and maintenance costs when compared with the steam turbine-based propulsion otherwise used in this class of ship, yet without compromising performance. To test the control software for the gas turbine propulsion system, manufacturer Northrop Grumman used a dSPACE system on board the ship itself.
