Abstract:

The goal of the Marine Physical Laboratory FLIP Floating Instrument Platform program is to maintain FLIP fully operational to support Office of Naval Research ONR sponsored research programs. Management of FLIP includes providing a trained crew to support all scheduled scientific expeditions and maintaining FLIP and included support systems materially ready for sea. Routine maintenance funded under this proposal includes the repair, overhaul andor the replacement of existing platform equipment necessary for FLIP to continue to operate safety in support of ONR research. Funding has also covered the cost of a routine dry docking of FLIP in 2013. Dry dockings occur at 3-year intervals.
