     FIC Feb 2002
               Fleet Capitalization
• Appropriations and Funding for Fleet
  Renewal - Agencies
• FIC Role? What can we do?




FIC Feb 2002
           Community Outreach and
               Involvement
•   Letters - EOS, etc.
•   SMR Workshops.
•   FIC Website.
•   Ocean Sciences Town Hall.
•   Recommendation
      – Regular (2/year in EOS and other society newsletters
        (ASLO, ?)
      – UNOLS Rep. Give specific instructions regarding
        contact.


FIC Feb 2002
Kilo Moana Shakedown Planning
• Goal - assure adequate assessment by
  oceanographers for oceanographers
• Process - Test plan, test schedule,
  participation, end product.




FIC Feb 2002
               FIC Membership
• Two vacancies
      – Renewal of existing members
      – Nominations




FIC Feb 2002
               What will demand be?
• Effect of new technology. More buoys,
  gliders, and observatories and few ships?
• Most think demand will increase as new
  phenomena are observed.
• Funding priorities. Agencies can drive ship
  demand up or down. Reality is funding for
  field operations will stay essentially flat.


FIC Feb 2002
               Recent Developments
• Federal Review of Academic Fleet: UNOLS
  concept is OK. Asks for replacement plan.
• Federal Oceanographic Facilities
  Committee (FOFC) develops
  recommendations for fleet replacement.
• Community Review and Comment of
  Federal plans.
• Leads to ….FOFC Report

FIC Feb 2002
      New Recommended Classes
• Global Class: high-endurance vessels, operating
  worldwide.
• Ocean Class: Replacement for the “Intermediate”
  ships with vessels of increased endurance,
  technological capability, and number of science
  berths. These will be ocean-going vessels, though
  not globally ranging.
• Regional Class: ships will work in and near the
  continental margins and coastal zone, but with
  improved technology and more science berths than
  in current, comparably sized vessels.
• Local Class ships will fulfill near-shore needs that
  do not require larger or higher-endurance ships.
FIC Feb 2002
                 Our proposed process
• FIC identification of Fleet renewal needs
• Establish Implementation Committee (ICom) for each
  Vessel Class or Vessel to be constructed
      – Provide guidance and leadership for executing the design and
        construction of a vessel or class of vessels.

• Develop SMRs
      –   Assess current inventory of SMRs
      –   Develop SMR template of necessary elements
      –   Generate (or update) general SMR’s by Vessel Class
      –   BROAD COMMUNITY INPUT
      –   Evolve to Specific SMR’s by Region, Ocean or Special Purpose
      –   Review by ICom, FIC, community and agencies.
      –   Finalize, publish, review and periodically update


FIC Feb 2002
      Our proposed process (continued)
• Develop Concept Designs
      – Based on SMRs
      – Solicit proposals from institution/architect teams (award may
        be to one or more)
      – Formal mechanism for community review during development
      – Finalize and publish
      – Use as a basis for operator selection and appropriation

• Operator Selection and Funding
• Develop Preliminary Designs
• Builder’s Design and Construction


FIC Feb 2002
               Latest Activities
• Discussions are progressing between ONR,
  Oceanographer of the Navy, NavSea and
  NSF regarding ways to get renewal process
  started.
• It is a given that the academic community
  will be involved.
• UNOLS/FIC assessment of best procedure
  for SMR process. Input from concept design
  groups.
FIC Feb 2002
           Other Present Activities
• R/V Kilo Moana - Construction
• Alaska Region Research Vessel – Design
  development
• Cape Henlopen Replacement
• Activities to replace ‘Ocean Class’ such as
  Wecoma and Endeavor
• Gulf of Mexico – initiated
• Many smaller, capable coastal vessels.
FIC Feb 2002
     Role of Ocean Science Community

• Participate in the SMR process.
  Whether you are on committees or not
  you can have influence.
• Talk with your UNOLS representative
  occasionally.
• Stay informed.
