I’m working on grad school paper on Port Security. Does anyone know if USCG Stations and Sectors command centers have AIS yet? The last USCG “Group” I worked at as a reservist four years ago did not, and that was long after it was required on commercial vessels. Neither did the Stations and cutters assigned the the Group. I remember suggesting it to the Group Commander, but that was AIS back then (kinda like GMDSS originally) was an “M” thing, plus there was no funding.
I don’t know about the new Sectors though. I can’t imagine they don’t by now. What about the smaller cutters and remote stations?
