    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."
