ALAMEDA, Calif. — The U.S. Coast Guard commissioned a new unit at Coast Guard Island called the Maritime Intelligence Fusion Center Pacific (MIFC PAC) today. MIFC PAC was embedded in a staff element of PACAREA, known as PACAREA Intelligence Division. The commissioning of this independent unit will improve operational effectiveness and will create a consistent organizational structure within the intelligence program as the Coast Guard modernizes.

The mission of MIFC PAC will be to produce predictive all-source national and law enforcement intelligence in general support of Coast Guard operational forces to shape planning, decision making, and mission execution.

The staff of MIFC PAC will be committed to developing and delivering timely, actionable, multi-mission maritime intelligence and situational awareness that drives operations in the Pacific, Arctic, Southern, and Indian Oceans and supports related intelligence requirements of the Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Intelligence Community and their law enforcement and international partners.

MIFC PAC will employ a total of 98 people; 63 active duty Coast Guard members, 16 reservists, and 19 civilians.
