Abstract : The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) needs to determine the total fleet requirements for ozone-depleting substances until they are phased out. To provide information about the necessary reserves of these substances during the outyears, NAVSEA recently conducted a survey of CFC/Halon usage in the fleet. This document provides a statistical analysis of the data from the survey, which includes reported usage for CFC-ll, CFC-12, CFC-1l4, and Halon 1301. The information in this report can be used to estimate the required CFC/Halon reserves. The average consumption figures can be used as the basis for an expected value approach, while those corresponding to the statistical confidence levels can be used to provide various degrees of guarantee that the estimated reserve will not be depleted prematurely.
