This two-volume study forecasts advances in science and technology and their implications to the Coast Guard to the year 2005. Implications include increasing demands for Coast Guard services, and expanding opportunities for the Coast Guard. Volume 1 describes the forces acting to promote or inhibit growth of science and technology; identifies potential areas in which the Coast Guard could make use of these advances; and describes a set of four "scenarios" for the year 2005 depicting the potential operational uses of these advances. The central themes of these four scenarios are respectively: command and control, environmental protection, the effects of the impending water shortage in the U.S., and use of an advanced marine vehicle by the Coast Guard. Volume 2 presents detailed scenes in amplification of the scenarios of Volume 1 and includes the bibliography.
