Under the MOU, U.S. Coast Guard and Canadian Defence Command personnel will make regular liaison visits between U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Intelligence Fusion Center Atlantic (MIFC LANT) in Virginia Beach, Va., and TRINITY Joint Ocean Surveillance and Information Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. These visits continue a regular operational partnership between MIFC LANT and TRINITY to improve the ability of both U.S. and Canada to conduct maritime homeland security and defense missions.
