This report presents the results of a study of future research needs in marine safety and environmental protection. Principal output of the study is an RDT&E plan describing work that would provide effective research support for the Coast Guard's marine safety activities. The most significant feature of the plan is that it combines the research needs of all the Coast Guard's organizational subdivisions relating to marine safety and environmental protection into a single, integrated plan of action. The plan is composed of fourteen project areas, each addressing a major problem in marine safety such as "Vessel Collisions" or "Identification of Pollution Spills." The project areas are subdivided into projects, and then tasks.
