- Joint High Speed Vessel : Jointly developed by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army, a high-speed, shallow-water transport ship intended for intra-theater logistics support in littoral operations
- Littoral Combat Ship : Lighter than a U.S. destroyer or frigate, (but heavier than a corvette or fast attack craft) relatively low-cost U.S. Navy warship type, capable of ocean crossings but optimized for coastal operations including mine warfare (MIW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASW).
