"The National Strategy for Maritime Security seeks to protect U.S. national and global maritime security interests by preventing attacks, and safeguarding the ocean and its resources through maximum threat and situational awareness across the vast maritime domain. The purpose of this project is to present a model for Strategic Maritime Domain Awareness that will enhance U.S. maritime security by linking the national and global maritime domains using the capabilities of the U.S. Navy; U.S. Coast Guard; national, state and local government agencies; and multi-national partners. Strategic Maritime Domain Awareness will provide continuously seamless and transparent awareness of the entire maritime realm to support The National Strategy for Maritime Security by deterring, disrupting or destroying threats; and enhancing international cooperation, bolstering commercial security, and ensuring the continuity of the marine transportation system."
