Abstract : This survey documents both past and ongoing development efforts of modular, transportable, personnel support systems applicable to the Merchant Ship Naval Augmentation Program (MSNAP). Four complete systems were encountered in the military community: MARAD-MSNAP, ARAPAHO, MCESS, PHM MLSGF. The first two were developed for shipboard use. The second two for shoreside or shipboard use. Only the ARAPAHO and PHM MLSGF systems are currently being funded to completion, the ARAPAHO as a proof-of-concept demonstration and the PHM MLSGF as an operational system.
