ARINC Awarded $117,000 MarAd Study Contract

The Maritime Administration has awarded a $117,563 study contract to ARINC Research Corporation, Annapolis, Md., for development of an Automated Management Control System for U.S.

public marine terminals.

The objectives of the 12-month study are to analyze the functional requirements of a public marine terminal, examine the cost benefits, and develop the concept design to meet the requirements.

The contractor will examine cargo and equipment flow between the terminal's gates and the shipto- apron transfer for potential areas for electronic or semi-automatic processing where it would contribute to management and control of terminals.

The study is designed to provide a program for the port and marine terminal industry whereby improved managerial capability will increase the productivity of terminals, enhance services provided to steamship operators, and improve the method of communicating cargo information to the landside customers receiving and delivering cargo to the terminal.

A small industry committee has been formed to advise and work with the contractor throughout the study.
