Coast Guard Releases C4&IT Strategic Plan

WASHINGTON— The U.S. Coast Guard published today a strategic plan that will enhance and modernize Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information Technology in support of mission execution.

The C4&IT Strategic Plan charts an ambitious path through the next five years by identifyiong goals, objectives and initiatives in the areas of information, technology, security, governance, and organizational excellence. By targeting C4&IT efforts in each of these areas, the Coast Guard can work to improve mission support while creating a foundation for future enhancements.

“This strategy was inspired by Coast Guard Commandant, Adm. Thad Allen’s vision of a flexible, agile and modern Coast Guard,” said Rear Adm. David T. Glenn, assistant commandant for C4&IT. “It confirms our commitment to delivering world-class C4&IT solutions in support of the Coast Guard’s missions of maritime safety, security and stewardship.”

The Coast Guard uses and deploys C4&IT assets such as radios and sensors to keep our forces connected with internal and external partners on shore, along the coasts and on the high seas. In each of these roles, C4&IT is depended upon to achieve its missions.

“The Coast Guard needs C4&IT to seamlessly communicate and share information,” said Glenn. “This plan identifies specific initiatives and milestones so that we may continue to meet this need.”
