Ship Time Request Overview

STR Management has moved to MFP

The US Academic Research Fleet is moving to Marine Facilities Planning (MFP) for scheduling initially and eventually cruise planning.

For all NEW or RESUBMITTED Projects/Ship Time Requests, go to and create a new SME. Some STRs for projects starting in 2022 and beyond have already been moved to Marine Facilities Planning ( Check your MFP Science Portal for any projects that might already be moved. If you need to make edits to projects that begin in 2022 and beyond, please contact for assistance. Be sure to indicate the Project and STR IDs that you would like to edit. For more information on getting into MFP, see the More Information button below.

Summary of Field Work:
Summary of Facility Requirements: For 2007 and 2008, we are reducing DSV Alvin days from 6 to 4 for EPR work (NP13) so we can have days on the RV Sharp to continue our coastal mooring work.
Summary of other requirements or comments: For 2006 and 2007, we will need DSV Alvin for EPR work (NP13).
