Abstract : This report is divided into three volumes. Volume I, 'Technology Assessment', contains state-of-the-art summaries and projected trends for major technology areas pertinent to buoy tender design. This volume, 'Literature Abstracts', contains an annotated bibliography of the citations during the technology survey. Volume III, 'Technology Characterization', contains a description of the relational model and documentation of the computerized database used for storage and analysis of buoy tender data. Volumes I, II, and III are contained within separate binders due to size considerations. Detailed abstracts of Volume I and III may be found within each volume. What follows is the abstract for only Volume II. This Volume 'Literature Abstracts', contains a bibliography of citations obtained in the technology survey. Citations include abstracts where available, and are organized by the following categories: 1) foreign aids to navigation vessels; 2) aids to navigation; foreign practices; 3) offshore supply support/work vessels; 4) hull forms for seakeeping; 5) propulsion systems; 6) weight handling systems; and 7) vessel automation, navigation, control and monitoring.
