Abstract:

This thesis uses Army Force Management processes to outline the development of the Coast Guards Maritime Security Response Team and advanced interdiction capabilities. Using the Capabilities Based Assessment Process, this thesis builds upon the development of the Maritime Security Response Team and explores United States Northern Commands need for a designated Maritime Crisis Response Force. By outlining the future joint operating environment and conducting functional area analyses, functional needs analyses and a functional solution analysis the thesis builds to its conclusion with the capabilities-based assessment recommendation on the need for the United States to have a crisis response unit focused on domestic maritime incidents and capable of supporting special mission units when directed by National Command Authority.
