This is the May 8, 2018 hearing titled "Blue Technologies: Use of New Maritime Technologies to Improve Efficiency and Mission Performance," held before the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Duncan Hunter: "This subcommittee has urged the Coast Guard to strongly advocate for the resources it needs to acquire the assets necessary to conduct its missions. The National Security Cutter acquisition program has exceeded the program of record; the Fast Response Cutter acquisition program is getting close to completing the program of record; while the Offshore Patrol Cutter and polar icebreaker acquisition programs are only just beginning. The reality of the Coast Guard's operational situation is that even with new assets, the Coast Guard has a big job to do. This subcommittee recognizes that technology can be a tool to fill any operational gaps in a cost-effective manner." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael J. Haycock, Eric J. Terrill, Michael B. Jones, Thomas S. Chance, Christopher J. Coyle, H. Tuba Ozkan-Haller, and Jonathan White.
