USCG, Canadian Coast Guard Sign Agreement to Improve Border Security

May 8, 2006

The Coast Guard and Canadian coast guard signed an agreement in Seattle to improve radar and video surveillance in Cooperative Vessel Traffic Management System waters on the international border. The agreement ensures the Coast Guard will install microwave equipment at the Canadian coast guard facility located at Mount Newton, British Columbia. The equipment will link an existing U.S. facility located at Mount Constitution, Wash., located in the San Juan Islands. A future U.S. facility is scheduled to be installed at Turn Point on Stuart Island, Wash. This facility will improve maritime safety as well as the organized flow of information within Cooperative Vessel Traffic Management System waters.
