The Coast Guard has made progress in information sharing, according to a Government Accountability Office report.

The GAO had previously discovered data-sharing issues with the Coast Guard for the past two years, including a 2011 finding that the Coast Guard had not met its goal of common C4ISR data sharing, a 2012 finding that the Watchkeeper data-sharing system didn’t meet requirements, and a 2013 finding that the Coast Guard was not following its own IT development guidance.

“The Coast Guard has made progress in developing its maritime domain awareness systems — including its Common Operational Picture — by increasing user access and adding data sources,” noted the report.

The Coast Guard as well other DHS agencies are also working on initiatives to improve tracking of small vessels, which have proven difficult to monitor.
