This is the final report of an activity whose goal was to evaluate the analytical and simulation resource requirements for the Coast Guard Vessel Traffic System VTS program. The need for both an immediate near-term capability, consisting of readily available shared resources, and a permanent, dedicated simulationsupport facility was addressed. The conclusions reached were that an immediate capability is required to assist in the orderly development of a family of currently planned for implementation. It was also concluded that should the Coast Guard VTS role expand, a dedicated simulationsupport facility will be justified, but that it is premature to attempt to establish a facility until additional information is obtained and more planning is performed.
