  • Abstract:
    Since the publication of "An Assessment of Maritime Trade and Technology" by Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) in October 1983, various proposals have been made to provide incentives for research and development (R&D) in an effort to enhance the industry's competitive position. Consequently, Congress requested OTA to analyze the Federal role and/or incentives for improved maritime R&D including new institutional arrangements, financing and priority setting. This supplement is in reply to that request. In order to investigate the subject in more detail than our original assessment, OTA conducted an industry-wide survey, receiving replies from approximately 85 U.S. ship and barge operating and building firms. Respondents to the survey represented about one-half of the firms and work force in these two major sectors of the U.S. maritime industry. The results of that survey and other analyses are contained in this supplement. The OTA survey provided some valuable basic data on R&D activities and views about problems and opportunities from a broad spectrum of the maritime industry. After preparing a draft report on the survey, OTA circulated it for comments and held a workshop to discuss survey results and proposals for possible changes in Federal institutions.
