The scope of the study was to perform an analysis of the performance requirements of personnel flotation devices, and to survey and evaluate the appropriate state of technologies. Emphasis was directed toward the problems and requirements for personnel flotation devices in recreational boating. The reason for this emphasis was that both the total number of fatalities and the rate of increase in fatalities, related to recreational boating, far exceeded those related to any other area.
