Interagency Operations Centers: Project Profile

Home > Projects > C4ISR > IOC > Project Profile


The IOC is the foundation for a coalition of federated agencies–including local, state and federal government first responders–in a port who conduct risk-based operational planning for improved port security. This collaboration establishes the framework necessary to synchronize and sequence single-agency mission planning with a more holistic interagency operational planning and monitoring continuum.

IOC partners share targeting, intelligence and scheduling information to improve situational awareness, uncover gaps in planned and ongoing operations, and reduce duplication of effort between agencies.

Coast Guard command centers equipped to serve as IOCs will be able to actively collect port activity information to develop real-time awareness, evaluate threat, and deploy finite resources to the right places.
