Abstract:

The U.S. Coast Guard is presently studying candidate advanced marine vehicles AMVs to replace its aging cutters. Several programs have been initiated to evaluate marine vehicles that best fulfill required missions. These programs include development of decision aids, test and demonstration of existing AMVs, and development of state-of-the-art point designs. The Research and Development Center has developed measures of effectiveness of AMVs in search and rescue, enforcement of laws and treaties, marine environmental protection, and military readiness missions. The MOEs are based on a probability of mission success and can be calculated based on existing data bases or test data. These MOEs provide a quantitative assessment of a crafts ability to perform a mission under specified operational and environmental constraints. An example is presented of how to use the MOEs in the process of evaluating candidate craft to replace existing cutters or procure new ones. Craft characteristics of AMVs were updated based on state-of-the-art technology. They were then incorporated in the Cutter Resources Effectiveness Evaluation CREE computer model, which was converted from FORTRAN IV to BASIC to allow it to run on an HP-9845 interactive desktop computer. Volume II is a users guide for the program.
