FEASIBILITY OF A NATIONAL VESSEL-TRAFFIC INFORMATION SYSTEM
The final study provides a base for determining if present fragmented methods for reporting anticipated and actual vessel movements into and out of the nation's ports can be expanded from today's port-centered systems to a nationally integrated system of vessel-movement reporting. The considerations leading toward the recommended national system are summarized and the technical alternatives that were considered are described. The expected costs and revenues of the preferred National Vessel-Traffic Information System at each stage of the recommended implementation process are provided. The report also describes the administrative and management activities to be undertaken during the establishment of the system. The recommended plan includes the formation of a national cooperative association of marine traffic reporting agencies.
