Abstract:

For each test system, four test panels were prepared. Two were installed on each side of the ship. Annual evaluations, based on ship availability, are planned. MCCOSc focused on completing toxicity testing of nine test coatings. Overall, the most toxic coating to all test organisms was RTVll 10 ablative carbinol. The least toxic coatings were RTVll 10 DMSCl5 and RTVll 10 ALT25l. All test results were presented at the DARPA-GE meeting held March 27, 1998 in Melbourne, Florida. University or Hawaii performed statistical analysis on laboratory and field data. Statistical analysis supported selection of top performing Coatings as well as confirmation of poor performers.
