A STUDY OF USCG SURVEILLANCE REQUIREMENTS OVER THE NEXT 25 YEARS AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SURVEILLANCE R AND D PROGRAM. VOLUME I
The objectives of this study were to provide a multimission assessment of possible Coast Guard surveillance requirements over the next 25 years in 5-year increments; and to develop a Coast Guard surveillance R and D program. The recommended program was to consider likely future demands on USCG surveillance capabilities and develop a time-phased program which would allow the Coast Guard to respond to changing demands in a timely fashion. Thus the first phase of the analysis concentrated on identifying and assessing the impact of future trends and events which could affect surveillance requirements. A list of potential events relevant to Coast Guard surveillance requirements was developed. These major events were then evaluated via a Delphi, with the participation of experts in a variety of appropriate fields. Once the relative importance of each surveillance requirement was established, a survey of current and future available technology was undertaken, to determine current development status, current level of application, pace of development, efficacy in meeting each surveillance requirement. Using cross-relevance matrices, a gap analysis was conducted to determine the efficacy of the technologies, as currently applied and potentially available, in meeting the most important surveillance requirements. The result was a determination of the relative importance of the technologies for Coast Guard research and development.
