The Maritime Domain Awareness Problem

The Problem

  • Size: The oceans are the largest ungoverned space on the planet

  • Diversity: MDA fuses the different sub-sets of illicit, environmental, and normal maritime activities to provide a clearer understanding of the activity

  • Collaboration: Interagency and international collaboration have been limited historically

    The Solution

  • Information Sharing Environment: Increase exchange of information across agencies and countries

  • Technology: Leverage technology to apply limited resources to multiple missions simultaneously

    The Outcome

  • Increasing collaboration and adding leading edge technology provides a more efficient use of resources in maintaining maritime situational awareness
