1. Title: Understanding how Mariners use Aids to Navigation—A Systems Analysis Project for the U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center.
OMB Control Number: 2115-0644.
Summary: The goal of the National Aids to Navigation Survey is to understand how mariners use aids in order to navigate. Navigational methods and techniques vary with the type of vessel, conditions of the waterway, and the navigator's experience.
Need: The survey is being done under the mandates of the National Performance Review and Executive order 12802. It will enable program officers in aids to navigation (AtoN) to assess navigational risk, implement appropriate AtoN strategies, and measure the effectiveness of the program in reducing the number of vessel collisions, allisions, and groundings.
Respondents: Navigators of vessels.
Frequency: On occasion.
Burden: The estimated burden is 6,518 hours annually.Start Signature
