THE OPERATIONAL CAPABILITIES OF THE PROPOSED AIR DELIVERABLE ANTI-POLLUTION TRANSFER SYSTEM (ADAPTS). VOLUME 1. STUDY METHOD AND RECOMMENDATIONS

To prevent oil from being spilled from a stranded (or otherwise distressed) tanker during the short time available between the beginning of the distress and the release of the oil cargo into the sea, a system of aircraft deliverable equipment and people is being developed by the U.S. Coast Guard. The system is named the Air Deliverable Anti-Pollution Transfer System and the acronym used is ADAPTS. The effectiveness of the system is measured by the amount of oil it can transfer from the tanker in 24 hours. (Author)
