Search and Rescue
As weather conditions change, and inland and shipping lane traffic increases, it is imperative to utilize the most advanced reliable search and rescue technology and techniques.
Increasing Border Security
Border Security is at a premium with programs being implemented to ensure the safety and security of the United States.
Law Enforcement and Drug Interdiction
Mobility and communication are two of the essential components for the U.S. Coast Guard’s law enforcement mission.
International, Intra-agency and Private-sector Partnerships
The U.S. Coast Guard relies heavily on interoperability, as their partnerships with the maritime shipping industry, contractors and the private sector increasingly will rely on secure communication and the shift of IT services to an Infrastructure Managed Services model in the ongoing efforts to provide security within the cyber domain.
Increasing Education for CG Career Advancement
Promoting and incentivizing educational opportunities that provide Coast Guard personnel the opportunity to successfully advance their Coast Guard career as well as in the private sector remain an important goal of the service.
More Funding = More Modernization Across all Districts
Modernization of facilities and lifecycle maintenance of the entire cutter fleet are vital during the transition of the medium endurance cutters to the OPC.
Navigational Aids: Charting the Course to Modernization
Safety and security on inland waterways, coastal and international shipping lanes is ensured by use of navigational aids, both traditional ones that need to be maintained, and new technologies being introduced to the ATON mission.
The Coast Guard & Community
The bonds between the Coast Guard and the civilian community are especially strong in areas that host a Coast Guard base, installation, or air station. Even more so than for the nation at large, in these settings the service is an integral part of the safety, security, and economics of the community, and both benefit by the association.
