Abstract : The purpose of this report is to document United States Coast Guard (USCG) Research and Development (R&D) efforts in support of the Maritime Domain Awareness Data Sharing Community of Interest (MDA DS COI) Spiral 3 Project. The project focuses on sharing the sensitive data associated with Notice of Arrival (NOA) messages and the Single Integrated LookOut (SILO) list in a net-centric Web-services environment. It documents the background of the efforts leading up to the project, the technological hurdles faced in achieving a solution, and the policy and collaborative challenges experienced during the project. The COI, which included the Coast Guard and other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies, laid the foundation for a complete paradigm shift in the protection of sensitive data, and enabled its exposure in an enterprise network environment without compromising the information. This report summarizes the end result of Spiral 3 and describes the transition to a new framework for future development.
