A submarine that can make the kind of power the Navy uses on submarines and attack submarines will have an even bigger future in the Navy, as a new class of engine made by a Marine engineer has been awarded a coveted honor by the Navy.
Marine Engine is an advanced design that allows the ship to be built more efficiently than a conventional diesel-electric submarine, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 840 miles per hour.
The design, which was developed by the Marine Corps’ engineering branch, is one of a growing number of advanced diesel-powered boats that are coming from the engineering branch.
This week, the Navy awarded the design a top-10 award, and is expected to make the final decision on the class within months.
The Marine Corps plans to award the first class of the new class sometime in 2019.
“Marine engine is a major technological advance,” said Lt.
Col. Kevin Dyer, the lead engineer for the new design and a member of the engineering staff at Marine Corps Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller’s office.
“We are going to be able to operate and sustain the ship in a number of ways that have never been possible before.”
The Marine engine is one that the Navy is using on the next generation of attack submarines, and it is an improvement over the diesel-based submarine designs that are being built by Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
The Navy has been testing the new engine in a large testbed in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Dyer said the Marine engine will allow the Navy to operate the ship at much higher speeds and at a much lower cost than other diesel-engine submarines.
The new design is also expected to give the Navy a way to build ships more quickly and at much lower costs.
The new design, Dyer said, will allow ships built with the new technology to be completed within three years instead of five years.
The Marine Corps will use the Marine Engineering Center to develop and test the engine.
The Marines will also be able use the design for testing the engine on other ships.
The Navy also has been looking to replace diesel submarines, which have been in service since the 1950s.
The current fleet of diesel submarines is the class that uses the most fuel.
Dyer expects that the new Marine engine to help the Navy meet its goals to replace its fleet of submarines.
Dyers said that he is pleased that the design is one with the potential to make a big impact in the future.
“It is one more piece that makes this program work,” he said.
