    Advantage at Sea: Prevailing with Integrated All-Domain Naval Power

    Arctic Strategic Outlook

    Since the release of the Coast Guard Arctic Strategy in 2013, the renewal of global strategic competition has coincided with dramatic changes in the physical environment of the Arctic. The interaction of these drivers has made the Arctic a strategically-competitive space for the first time since the end of the Cold War. Competition does not preclude cooperation, and the Coast Guard will always look for opportunities to collaborate to solve complex issues. However, the Service must do so within the context of the Nation's national security interests.

    Coast Guard Publication 3-0, Operations

    Since 1790 the Coast Guard has conducted integrated, layered operations across vast geographic maritime areas of responsibility to meet the evolving threats and challenges that face the Nation. The Coast Guard operates in the maritime domain, an enormous and complex environment. The physical characteristics of the sea present varying, dynamic and dangerous weather, seas states and water conditions. Human activity on the water continues to expand in a domain that does not readily sustain it. The maritime industry continues to evolve as the world remains fully dependent on global maritime trade in an advancing technology and information age. Varied and overlapping international and sovereign legal and policy regimes governing the maritime domain pose practical operational challenges. The Coast Guard requires a comprehensive concept of operations to successfully conduct operations in this unique operating environment.

    Cyber Strategic Outlook

    The U.S. Coast Guard is the nation’s lead federal agency for securing and safeguarding the nation’s maritime domain. Its role as both a military and law enforcement agency provide maximum flexibility to combat cyber threats and protect U.S. maritime interests both domestically and abroad. In 2015, the Coast Guard’s Cyber Strategy established cyberspace as a new operational domain for the Coast Guard. This new and updated Cyber Strategic Outlook reaffirms that foundation and that we will bring the same ethos, proven doctrine and operational concepts, and over 230 years of experience to bear on our operations in and through cyberspace.

    Maritime Commerce Strategic Outlook

    As a multi-mission, maritime armed force, with unique law enforcement, intelligence, and regulatory authorities, the Coast Guard ensures the safety, security, and stewardship of our Nation’s waters from internal waters to the outer limits of the 200-nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and beyond. The Coast Guard leverages its unique authorities, jurisdiction, and operational capabilities to safeguard the effi cient and economical movement of maritime commerce through the MTS. No other U.S. Government agency can have such far-reaching impact within the maritime domain.
