Abstract : The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is composed of 42,000 men and women, spread over nine districts and 35 different sectors, who are tasked with the security and stewardship of our nations waters. The Coast Guard operates 244 cutters, 1776 small boats and 198 aircraft to meet the needs of its mission. The men and women operating these platforms are tasked with a variety of different mission sets that include maritime security operations, law enforcement, prevention, response, defense operations and marine transportation system management. In 2012, the USCG conducted over 1,700 security boarding s on high interest vessels that were bound for the United States. One of the most crucial factors for success during these high-risk evolutions is communications between the host USCG cutter and the men and women who comprise the boarding team.
