Abstract : No one country, Department, or Agency holds all of the authorities and capabilities to achieve effective Maritime Domain Awareness. MDA can only be achieved through a collaborative network of partners drawing upon their cumulative authorities and capabilities. It is only through unity of effort that the security, safety, economic and environmental objectives associated with MDA can be achieved. This Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) Concept of Operations (CONOPS) provides a foundation for developing interagency and agency-specific policies, processes, procedures, and organizational relationships to align activities that contribute to achieving MDA. This initial spiral is primarily interagency focused, providing a federal approach to developing maritime domain awareness at home and abroad in support of the security, safety, economy, and environment of the United States. Many of the concepts and ideas expressed in this document are also applicable in working with local, state, tribal, international and private sector partners. Achieving MDA depends on the ability to monitor activities in such a way that trends can be identified and anomalies detected. The desired state is transparency in the maritime domain.
