Abstract : The FY05 CCDoTT program addressed eight technical development projects and two administrative tasks within the Agile Port and High Speed Ship technology sector. The FY05 Final Summary Report Volume I covering seven of the eight technical projects was submitted on July 2, 2008. Project 05-7, the Pacific Northwest Agile Port System Demonstration, became delayed due to changing requirements directed by the United States Transportation Command. Projects 05-1 and 05-2 provided support to Project 05-7 and were extended for the duration of the project. This report summarizes the results of the remaining three projects in the FY05 program cycle, in particular the PNW Agile Port System Demonstration, a system of moving freight that could result in a 300% improvement in container throughput and terminal efficiency.
