Abstract:

This report concludes that the Navys decision to homeport its mine countermeasures ships at Ingleside will necessitate the expenditure of significant additional funds to accommodate the ships and consolidate other mine warfare forces. Inglesides distance from the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets could also increase operational costs and hamper efforts to better integrate mine warfare forces into overall Navy operations. Further, we believe that the Navy has not adequately addressed these concerns of sufficiently analyzed the potential benefits of locating mine warfare forces at a base on both the East and West Coasts.
