This paper is a summarization of the application of gas turbines for Coast Guard shipboard use. Included are discussions of turbine applications in present use and their results, vessels presently being built which will employ gas turbines, and possible future applications of gas turbines both for main and auxiliary power aboard Coast Guard vessels. Comparisons of gas turbines with other power sources as to weight, space, fuel consumption and economy are included for the presently known applications.
