Abstract : A report has been prepared for the United States Coast Guard which develops 10-year and 25-year forecasts of the evolution of underwater remote sensing system technologies. Included is a delineation of the status of those technologies identified as having present or potential utility to current and projected Coast Guard missions. A modified Delphi technique was utilized to develop the forecasts wherein 131 questionnaires dealing with 9 specific technologies were sent to 56 separate organizations. The final positive response exceeded 50%. (Author)
