I can't find this word in my dictionary. What does shiptime mean in this article?
" ...33 U.S.C. § 883e, ...NOAA ... may contribute that portion of the costs incurred by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, including shiptime and personnel expenses, which NOAA determines represents the amount of benefits derived by the Administration from the agreement."
Shiptime refers to the time a ship is in use. In marine research projects the time required forl use at sea is called shiptime.
I hope this helps,
