ANALYSIS OF USCG REPLACEMENT STERN-LOADING BUOY BOAT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE AIDS TO NAVIGATION MISSION

The Volpe Center was asked by the Coast Guard to analyze the replacement stern-loading buoy boat requirements using the ATON Service Force Mix (SFM) Decision Support System (DSS). The DSS was developed previously by the Volpe Center in support of the Coast Guard's SFM 2000 Project to help determine the required fleet size and mix of replacement coastal and seagoing tenders needed to replace the current fleet of WLMs and WLBs. In addition to the work being performed by BUs and BUSLs, the Volpe Center considered two other areas for BUSLR employment: the buoy work of Coast Guard inland tenders (WLIs) and inland construction tenders (WLICs); and the assurance of adequate secondary response capabilities for the current WLM and WLB home ports proposed for elimination by the SFM 2000 Project.
