INLAND WATERWAYS COMMUNICATIONS STUDY. VOLUME I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The report presents the results of a study of the communications requirements of the companies operating on the inland waterways, encompassing the Mississippi, Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, Warrior and Missouri rivers and a portion of the Inter-coastal Waterway. Industry communications requirements are presented in detail, leading to the development of several alternative system concepts for an integrated Inland Waterways Communications System. A detailed evaluation of the hypothesized alternatives is presented and the preferred system concept is recommended. The implementation characteristics of the preferred system concept are described, as are the type of organization required to operate the system and the regulatory environment in which the system will operate.
