The Merchant Marine Act of 1970 declares an national policy that government financial assistance should be provided in the seventies for domestic construction of a series of modern, productive ships. The principal governmental assistance extended is construction differential subsidy (CDS) under Title V of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936, as amended. The Maritime Administration (Marad), in administering the CDS program, has issued Standard Specifications for Merchant Ship Construction. This paper discusses the telecommunications equipment sections of the Standard Specifications, and the role of the specifications in the ship-building industry.
