The MSIS is being developed for the USCG by the Columbus laboratory of Battelle, Inc. The system design was completed in 1975-76; the development of the experimental prototype is in progress; and the testing and evaluation and operational deployment phases are expected to be completed by fiscal yea 1981. It is an interactive system, linking system users together as both suppliers and receivers of information. The basic data content is a comprehensive history of Coast Guard involvement and findings relative to individual vessels. Within this framework, detailed safety profiles for vessels and facilities can be developed, analyzed, and compared; current status relative to regulatory actions can be generated; common areas can be detected; pending actions can be monitored; and administrative functions can be performed.
