($56,575) Web-based Document Management System: A contract was awarded to provide web-based document management to better enable the handling of thousands of recreational boating recall cases and campaign reports. ($65,217) Safety Decals: Emergency Radio Call Procedures Decal used to promote proper emergency radio procedures for recreational vessels were produced and distributed. These are designed to be displayed immediately adjacent to the vessel’s VHF–FM marine radio and assist vessel operators in properly making emergency radio calls. ($25,810) Low Power Radio Transmitter System: The project funded a low power travelers information radio transmitter system in the 13th Coast Guard District for continual transmission of Bar conditions and restrictions as well as boating safety information to the boating public. ($28,471) Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) Outreach Program: Funding was provided for this program which provides full marketing, media, public information, and program strategy support to the nation-wide RBS effort. The goal is to coordinate the RBS outreach initiatives and campaigns some of which include: National Boating Under the Influence Campaign (BUI), ‘‘You’re in Command. Boat Responsibly!’’, PFD Wear, Vessel Safety Check Program (VSC), Boating Safety Education Courses, Propeller Strike Avoidance, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, and other recreational boating safety issues on an as needed basis. ($1,032,258) Virtual Reality Personal Watercraft (PWC): A virtual reality PWC was developed under contract to provide a platform to gather objective data on operator reactions to various scenarios. This information would otherwise be unobtainable or would require more costly methods and sources, due to the risk of injury to the operator as well as due to the difficulty of accurately replicating conditions for all operators. The virtual reality PWC is being used in various test scenarios to collect human factors data including the measurement of reactive movements and reaction time that will assist in making decisions or taking action to improve personal watercraft safety. The data from this effort will give greater insight into the human-machine interface related to PWC operation and will assist in the effort to attempt to reduce PWC accidents. ($50,000) Boating Accident Report Database (BARD) Web System: BARD Web System VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 May 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 funding enables reporting authorities in the 50 States, five U.S. Territories and the District of Columbia to manage their accident reports electronically over a secure Internet environment. The system also enables the user community to generate statistical reports that show the frequency, nature, and severity of boating accidents. FY 06 funds supported system maintenance, technical (hotline) support and formal classroom instruction for the entire user community. ($438,781) Personnel Support: Funding was provided for personnel to support the development of new regulations, to support new contracting activities associated with the additional funding, and to monitor and manage the contracts awarded. ($573,188) Propeller Injury Avoidance Working Group: Travel expenses were reimbursed for subject-matter experts to convene as a working group to explore ways that injuries associated with propeller strikes could be minimized. ($12,505) National Recreational Boating Safety Program Strategic Planning: Meetings were conducted to continue strategic planning for the national recreational boating safety program. Funds were expended on meeting space, supplies, and travel expenses for members of the strategic planning panel. ($95,172) National Recreational Boating Survey: A national recreational boating survey was conducted to obtain up-to-date statistical estimates on recreational boating. Over 25,000 surveys were completed with individuals who boated between September 2001 and September 2002. Survey findings were extrapolated to produce national, regional and State estimates of boat use as well as the characteristics of boat operators, passengers, boats, safety equipment, and the boating environment. ($118,056) A total of $26,365,949 of the $35,000,000 made available to the Coast Guard through annual transfers of $5 million in fiscal years 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005 has been committed, obligated or expended as of September 30, 2005.
