After 23 years of distinguished service, ESU Seattle is now Base Seattle C4IT Department. Same great service, different name.

The Base Seattle C4IT (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Information Technology) Department provides technical support for all Coast Guard electronic systems operated in the Pacific Northwest.  The department maintains a wide variety of electronics equipment on small boats, shore units, and patrol boats through an electronics maintenance contract. This contract is monitored by Quality Assurance Evaluators (QAEs) at each of the ESDs. In addition, C4IT has a small number of technicians to assist larger cutters and with electronics project coordination.

Base Seattle C4IT's Networks team maintains and supports Coast Guard-owned telephone systems, including switches and associated telephone wiring, and Coast Guard-owned microwave systems.
