The U. S. Coast Guard USCG and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement BSEE, formerly the Minerals Management Service MMS, have collaborated on many projects using Ohmsett, the Oil Spill Response Research and Renewable Energy Test Facility, that was previously known as a fully capitalized acronym, Ohmsett. This facility is located on the U.S. Naval Weapons Station Earle in Leonardo, New Jersey. This report includes historical USCG utilization of Ohmsett and a description of the capabilities of Ohmsett to support the USCG, including testing capabilities, conference rooms for training, areas for set up, proximity to pierwater and other capabilities that have possible USCG applicability. It also presents ideas for alternative USCG uses of Ohmsett, including using the NWS Earle pier as a staging platform for other RDC projects.
