Abstract : In February 1993, DoD technical needs, combined with ocean technology capability in Hawaii, yielded the National Defense Center of Excellence for Research in Ocean Sciences (CEROS). CEROS was established through a grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to the High Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), an agency of the State of Hawaii attached to the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DEBDT). CEROS was funded * . for the purpose of conducting research and development activities of interest to the Department of Defense . . . and . . . to support and stimulate a broad spectrum of research in ocean science in the State of Hawaii. DARPA awarded MDA 972-94-1-0010 for $5,000,000 to HTDC for CEROS in May 1994. Total funding to CEROS for Grant No. MDA 972-94-1-0010 was approximately $18,738,000. This grant supported a core program of thirty-nine projects involving nineteen prime contractors during CEROS FY94, FY95, and FY96. All contracts were complete by the end of June 1999. This report describes the work done under the 1994 grant. Following is an outline of individual projects in the core program, and more detailed information is available in chapters 2 through 27 of this report.
