Scaffolding

An employee walks across scaffolding surrounding a littoral combat ship. Proposed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the LCS is intended to replace vessels such as aging frigates in shallow seas close to shore. It is supposed to perform missions such as destroying mines, hunting submarines, interdicting drugs, and providing humanitarian relief. The idea is to outfit the ships with easily swapped equipment suited to the task at hand.
