Abstract
The paper is a summary of some possible advances in the naval architecture of fast surface warships, as forecast for a recent NATO Long-Term Scientific Study. The forecasts cover resistance and propulsion, seakeeping, stability and control, materials and structures, and power plants, considering both conventional and unconventional hull types. They do not address any aspect of the combat systems or other outfit installed. On the basis of these forecasts, the potential of promising types of surface warships is outlined, in so far as this is possible without specifying the function of a ship or its payload. These conclusions reflect a consensus reached by 35 experts from the seven nations participating in the NATO study.
