SHIP UNDERWATER MAINTENANCE, EVALUATION, AND REPAIR (SUMER) MASTER PLAN

This study proposes a plan of action to implement the actions necessary for a total program of ship hull husbandry and waterborne maintenance and repair. Serving as a focal point for technology transfer, the Master Plan is designed to coordinate a smooth transition between research and development and ultimate fleet implementation. Ongoing efforts and existing hardware and techniques are identified, as well as gaps yet to be filled. Five principal areas addressed are: (1) Ship Underwater Coatings, (2) Non-Coating Protection Systems, (3) Fouling Diagnostics and Inspection Methods, (4) Waterborne Cleaning, and (5) Waterborne Repair Measures.
