Abstract:

The Navy has conducted research and development on the concept of using floating stable platforms for combatant missions. Much of the technological data developed is directly applicable to solutions for civilian problem areas, such as offshore floating airports, nuclear power generating plants, construction support bases, industrial sites, trans-shipping terminals, and water processing plants. The report discusses the technology developed by the Navy, and describes several applications when the transfer of this technology to civilian applications can benefit contemporary society.
