The Vessel Traffic System Communications Study was performed to analyze the information sources and requirements for safe navigation in U.S. harbors. The effect of the information that was found necessary to be collected and passed by a VTS, on existing voice communication channels, was analyzed to provide an identification of a need for better multiple voice frequencies or an alternate mode of communications. Specific results in both of these areas were obtained and can be directly applied to the problem of designing a VTS communication system. In addition certain other areas related to the design of a VTS communications system were uncovered and identified.
