Abstract:

A brief statement of the problem is The Coast Guard operates in a rapidly changing environment. The demands placed on the Coast Guard originate in this environment these demands also are changing rapidly in form and increasing in intensity. Technology is a major source of change in the environment technology also represents a major opportunity for enhancing Coast Guard capability to meet new demands. Technology thus represents both challenge and opportunity to the Coast Guard. In order to meet the challenge of technological change and to exploit its opportunities, the Coast Guard requires a view of technological evolution in the long term future to be most useful this view should be a spectrum of possibilities rather than a simple forecast.
