The document describes current ATON operations, the concept, development, and operation of the Decision Support System (DSS), the data utilized by the DSS, validation of the DSS, and the proposed service force mix. Volume II, Development and Application of an Aids to Navigation Service Force Mix Decision Support System -- Aid Assignments and Vessel Summary Reports, contains the DSS outputs associated with the findings of Volume I. Included are maps of the aid assignments for each vessel in both the current and proposed fleets and the associated one-page DSS summary printouts. Volume III, Analysis of Multi-Mission Requirements and Development of Planning Factors for the Replacement Buoy Tender Fleet, documents the USCG's analysis and development of baseline multi-mission requirements of the replacement buoy tender fleet. The document describes buoy tender employment categories, historical tender employment data, the determination of underway hours per underway day, and projected impacts on multi-mission requirements resulting from alternative replacement fleet scenarios.
