"The goal of this document is to define the features, processes and technologies required to implement the Maritime Information Sharing Environment (MISE). The MISE is the body of the National Maritime Domain Awareness Architecture Plan [NMDAP] (also referred to as the Architecture Plan) and is the term that embodies the participants and functions described herein. [...] Maritime information must be integrated and shared across the GMCOI [Global Maritime Community of Interest] to gain an effective understanding of the maritime domain. The Architecture Plan is a solution to mitigate and manage gaps between the different information sharing systems and user requirements."
