A large variety of ocean vehicles (air, surface, and undersea) are assessed. The operational parameters speed, endurance time, and useful payload weight are related to the design parameters--propulsion power, vehicle weight, and size. Particular emphasis is given to the speed region of 40 to 200 knots and the associated feasible endurance and payload values. The methodology developed rapidly identifies, to both operator and engineer, the possible spectrum of alternatives and attempts to answer the question: "What price speed?" The price for speed includes not only an economic cost, but also an increasing restriction on feasible endurance and payload capabilities.
