Coast Guard looks into sensors for maritime surveillance

The U.S. Coast Guard is looking for information on how it can use commercial, low-cost sensors in remote areas of the Pacific Ocean to improve “effective offshore awareness capability,” according to a request for information.

The Coast Guard patrols 12.2 million square miles in the Pacific and has limited aerial resources. Sensors could help expand intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance without additional staff, ships or planes.

Coast Guard officials are looking for information on sensors' capabilities, their range, how they  transmit data, their capability for automatic target recognition and how they would integrate with existing fleet platforms. Systems that have been used by small, remote Pacific Island states and other technologies with little or no logistics funding trail will also be considered.

Responses are due Oct. 31.
