APPENDIX B Acknowledgments The Committee on Advances in Navigation and Piloting owes a debt of gratitude to the many individuals and organizations that contributed to this as- sessment. It was an undertaking that far exceeded the committee's expectations in terms of its complexity. The committee acknowledges and expresses its gratitude for the special technical support provided by many members of the marine community. In par- ticular: Thomas Allegretti, The American Waterways Operators, coordinated and moderated towing industry presentations to the committee at its Houston meet- ing, and he coordinated preparation of a technical paper for the committee on pilotage in the towing industry; Scott Bartlett and Richard Kenney, Sperry Ma- rine, hosted a demonstration and provided technical information on integrated bridge systems (IBS) and vessel traffic services (VTS) technology; Joseph Cox, American Institute of Merchant Shipping, coordinated and moderated shipping- industry presentations to the committee at its Houston meeting; Edward T. Gates, Arceneaux and Gates, provided insight on hydrodynamic forces acting on ships; John Hartke, U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters, provided technical advice on fed- eral pilotage; Paul Kirschner, American Pilots' Association, provided technical support concerning state pilotage laws and regulations; John MacLeod, Canadi- an Coast Guard Traffic Centre Vancouver, provided background support for the VTS assessment and hosted a visit to his facility; Donald Jarrell, Canadian Coast Guard Traffic Centre Vancouver, provided technical insight on the similarities and differences between air traffic control and marine traffic regulation in the Port of Vancouver, British Columbia; and Warren Schneeweis, U.S. Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service New York, and Spencer Martin, Canadian Coast Guard, 354

Neely, American Pilots' Association; George Quick, International Organi- zation of Masters, Mates, and Pilots; and William A. Arata, Biscayne Bay Pilots. The assistance that was provided in arranging meetings, testimony, site vis- its, and observation trips, and in preparing descriptions of pilotage routes, prac- tices, administration, and professional development programs, was invaluable to the completion of the committee's work. The committee wishes to especially acknowledge those who, in addition to corresponding with the committee, met with members and staff during meetings and site visits to provide the range of perspectives and technical detail that was necessary to the preparation of a com- prehensive report. During the course of the study, a delegation of committee members visited selected locations in Europe. The committee is especially indebted to W. Ph. van Maanen, formerly with the Rotterdam Port Authority, who assisted in organizing and moderating substantial presentations and discussions of marine navigation and piloting issues in the Netherlands, and who provided reference materials on the use of marine simulation for waterways design and professional develop- ment. Marianne Roelofs, Rotterdam Port Authority, assisted with arrangements for the delegation's meetings in Rotterdam. Special thanks are also extended to the many participants who made the Rotterdam meetings a success, including S. N. Zuurbier, Bernt R. Koning, and Jan Kloos, Reg. Loodsencorporatie Rotterdam-Rijnmond, who provided detailed insight on pilotage in the Netherlands and arranged and coordinated a visit to the Rotterdam Pilot's North Sea station boats; Robert Hofstee, Rotterdam Pilots, who provided advice and arranged for a committee member to observe the pilot- ing of a very large crude carrier into the Maas River; J. Hussem, who hosted the delegation's visit to the Flushing VTS, Scheldt Coordination Centre, and ar- ranged and moderated presentations on marine traffic regulation and crisis man- agement involving both Belgian and Dutch authorities; James Lindahl, SILJA Line Ferries, who graciously arranged for members of the delegation to observe the operation of IBS on the Stockholm-Turku and Stockholm-Helsinki routes; Olle Noord, master, Motor Ship Silja Symphony, who provided detailed advice on the use of IBS; I. M. H. Slater, Thames Navigation Service, who briefed members of the delegation on VTS operations, hosted a visit to the London VTS, and provided technical advice; James Whitton, Thames Navigation Service, who briefed the committee on changes in pilotage in the United Kingdom and hosted a visit to the Port of London Authority pilot station; Benny Pettersson, who provided insight on constant radius turns and use of IBS in piloting; Bo Lill- jegren, Sven G. Gylden, and Hans O. G. Hederstrom, who provided insight on pilotage in Sweden and hosted a visit to the Gothenburg pilot station and VTS; Captain Beitikainen, Finnish Pilots Association, Martti Heikkila, Technical Re- search Center of Finland, and Dieter Muntzel, Helsinki Port Authority, who
