DARPA Novel Seaplane will employ wing-in-ground-effect (WIG) or Ground-effect vehicle (GEV) 

Traditional sea and air lift platforms have significant operational constraints that limit flexibility. Sea lift platforms provide highly efficient transportation of large payloads, but require long transit times (days to weeks), large highly developed ports, and large standoff distances in contested environments. Conventional strategic airlift platforms provide high speed, but …
