Marine Facilities Planning Help

Marine Facilities Planning (MFP)

Marine Facilities Planning is the new system designed to replace the old Ship Time Request System (STRS).  This website allows scientists to request ship time on the vessels of the U.S. Academic Research Fleet and then update their funding.  Eventually the fleet's cruise planning will also be accomplished through this portal.
