Abstract:

The Marine Voyage Safety System MARVSS was conceived and proposed by Commander, Coast Guard Pacific Area. The Operations Analysis Branch, Commander, Atlantic Area was directed to conduct a technical analysis and feasibility study of the proposed float plan system. To determine the estimated costs of implementing MARVSS, a model was developed and evaluated for one, two and three regional data collection points. The study shows that the cost of such a float plan system cannot be justified by the limited benefits that such a system can provide. Author
