FUTURE UNDERWATER ACTIVITIES AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR THE COAST GUARD CIRCA 1978-2000. VOLUME I

The objectives of this study are to develop forecasts of underwater activities circa 1978-2000 and to assess the implications of these forecasts for the U.S. Coast Guard. A macro environmental framework, a marine environmental framework, and an underwater activities systems model were structured to form a baseline for a forecast of underwater activities. Data with which to load the models and frameworks were developed through literature reviews, interviews, and written correspondence. The data were organized for each of the underwater activities under the following headings: Operational Systems, Environmental Requirements, Locations, U.S. National Interests, Implications, and Forecasts. Each activity development was then individually analyzed for future evolution, driving forces, barriers and obviating factors. Each of the fifteen underwater activity categories within the model was translated into 'Tailored Vignettes' for the Coast Guard. A final integrative inventory of forecasted operational systems was developed.
