Monday, December 19, 2005
The United States Coast Guard announces a significant milestone in its critical life saving and homeland security missions by officially accepting Rescue 21 at a ceremony at Air Station Atlantic City, N.J., on Tuesday. The ceremony will dedicate the system for Atlantic City, and Eastern Shore, Va. Keynote speakers include the Honorable Frank LoBiondo, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, Adm. Thomas H. Collins, Commandant of the Coast Guard. Jerry DeMuro, Executive Vice President of General Dynamics' Information Systems & Technology Group will also be speaking. Rescue 21 is a search and rescue and command and control system, leveraging 21st century technology to boost search and rescue capability and better protect the nation’s coastal waterways and ports. The system improves the way the Coast Guard locates and assists distressed boaters, enabling interoperability with other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and with first responders. The Rescue 21 system has been thoroughly tested in both Atlantic City and Eastern Shore, with full nationwide system rollout to 44 additional regions slated for completion in 2011. Integrating state-of-the-art digital technology with expanding mission needs allows Rescue 21 to drastically improve response time and reliability by providing: • increased geographic coverage along coastal areas, navigable rivers and waterways • improved interoperability with other emergency agencies •
