U.S. Navy’s Maritime Prepositioning Force ships USNS Pililaau (T-AK 304) and USNS 2nd Lt. John P. Bobo (T-AK 3008) recently tested their skills in deploying the Improved Navy Lighterage System (INLS), a floating pier-like causeway system.

The INLS is a sea state three (SS3) capable system comprised of interchangeable modules and is used to transfer cargo from Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships to shore areas where conventional port facilities are unavailable or inadequate.

The system was deployed during the Combined Joint Logistics Over The Shore (CJLOTS) 2017 drills that took place from April 8 to 12, in South Korea.
