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. Volume II, 'Literature Abstracts', contains an annotated bibliography of the citations obtained during the technology survey. This Volume, '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 Volumes I and II may be found within each volume. What follows is the abstract for only Volume III. This Volume, 'Technology Characterization', consists of a Marine Technology Database (MTD) containing buoy tender data developed in this survey. The MTD is maintained at the U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center located at Groton, CT. Within this binder is the Marine Technology Database User's Guide and Documentation. Eight areas of interest have been identified and include Aids to Navigation (foreign and domestic practices), foreign Aids to Navigation tenders, Offshore/Support/Work vessels, hull configurations, propulsion systems, propulsor systems, weight handling systems, and vessel automation sub-systems.
