The U.S. Naval Institute is a private, self-supporting, not-for-profit professional society, which publishes
Proceedings as part of the open forum it maintains for the sea services. The Naval Institute is not an agency of the U.S. government; the opinions expressed in these pages are the personal views of the authors.
