Abstract : A method for making a first order estimate of the initial investment cost of conventionally-powered strike aircraft carriers is presented. The only input parameters required to apply the method are: carrier displacement, year in which the ship is to be laid down, whether the ship is a new or a repeat design, and whether the ship is to be built in a naval or private shipyard. Application of this method to an illustrative example indicates a quasi-linear, but not proportional, variation of cost with displacement within the range of 40,000 to 100,000 tons. (Author)
