1 21 st Century Coastguard BAPCO Newcastle 12 November 2014

2 HM Coastguard The Future Coastguard Programme is intended to modernise the existing Service in a manner that provides effective and efficient provision into the future whilst maintaining the current quality of service. FCG Maritime Operations Version 1. January 2012

3 HM Coastguard There are two operational pillars to the Coastguard service: Maritime Operations -(which this presentation addresses) is focussed on the seafaring community, the UK’s seaborne and offshore interests and the initiation and coordination of all maritime and coastal emergency response Coastal Operations -which is focussed on the safety of users of the UK coastline, including coastal search and rescue provision

4 Maritime Operations  Why  What  How

5 Maritime Operations  Why  What  How

6 Coast Guard Functions  Search and Rescue  Pollution Response  Vessel Traffic Management  Maritime Safety  Accident and Disaster Response  Maritime Security

7  Search and Rescue  Pollution Response  Vessel Traffic Management  Maritime Safety  Accident and Disaster Response  Maritime Security  Customs  Border Control  Fisheries Control  Law Enforcement Coast Guard Functions

8 Wellbeing of Citizens  Security (Energy, Borders, Physical, Economic)  Safety (Environment, Physical)  Climate Change EU Integrated Maritime Policy

9 Wellbeing of Citizens  Security (Energy, Borders, Physical, Economic)  Safety (Environment, Physical)  Climate Change Prosperity  Aquaculture  Leisure  Commerce  Travel EU Integrated Maritime Policy

10 Maritime Surveillance: The systematic and continuous observation of the maritime domain to achieve effective situational awareness. Maritime Domain Awareness : The understanding of activities carried out in the maritime domain to support timely decision making in the fields of Maritime Security and Maritime Safety. Maritime Surveillance

11 Maritime Operations  Why  What  How

12  National Maritime Operations Centre (NMOC)  Coastguard Operations Centres (CGOC): Shetland; Aberdeen; Humber; Dover; Falmouth; Milford; Holyhead; Belfast and Stornoway  Disaster Recovery at Dover  London Coastguard Maritime Operations

13 Maritime Operations Communications & Data Links NMOC +SDC CGOC +NDC CGOC +DR London CG MCA IL3 Blue Light Network

14  Satellite imagery  Aerial surveillance  Active sensors  Passive sensors  Environmental data  Charting  Bathymetry  Databases Maritime Picture Informs Common Recognised Information Picture

15  Has a distant horizon – the extent of the maritime domain  Is a portal for other government departments into the maritime domain, and vice versa  Exercises command and control over Coastguard operations National Maritime Operations Centre

16 Counter Pollution  Monitoring  Response Traffic Monitoring  Targeting  Tracking  Intervention Maritime Operations Functions Rescue Coordination  Civil Maritime (including the initiation of Coastal Response)

17 Maritime Operations  Why  What  How

18  Generates a maritime picture using information from a variety of sources  Proactive as well as reactive  Manages risk Maritime Operations Methods  Detects threats to safety, the environment and security at an early stage through awareness of deviations from the normal

19  Assesses background risk  Deploys resources in anticipation  Provides tactical and strategic decision making  Ensures resilience  Provides national command for major maritime incidents Maritime Operations Methods

20 Manages Resources to meet Demand

21 The detail of how National Maritime Operations service network will be developed over the next 12 months. Transition

22 Please note these are representative areas. The UK has been divided into Zones which are grouped into Areas of Responsibility and these are under the control of maritime operations teams based in the NMOC or CGOC. These groupings will be based on a risk assessment that considers predicted activity, resourcing and any other relevant factors such as events, weather forecast, etc.

23 GMDSS A1 and A2 DSC Alerts Resource Information by Vision area The systems that provide:  Communications.  Incident and Information management  Domain awareness. Will have aligned pre-defined ‘Functional / Work’ areas ICCS provides:  Distribution of communications into a maximum of 40 functional areas  Up to 30 radio channels per area  Ability to monitor 15 channels/aerials on a single terminal screen  Telephones (inc. 999) directed according to post code (as now)  Intercom facility (desk to desk anywhere sharing same ICCS)  Vision Direct dial facility

24 Resource Management (A case study) A distress alert initiates the opening of an incident. This is being coordinated by the CGOC with responsibility for that area on that day. All on-duty teams nationally will be aware of this (and all other) incident(s) as they share the same ViSION system

25 As the demands of the incident increase the workload on the team at the CGOC, the Controller responsible for that Centre, has a number of options for managing that workload. These include any combination or all of:  Delegating away non-emergency work across the network  Adding resource (virtual operators)  Reducing the size of Area In this case, in consultation with the Commander a change of AOR for the CGOCand flank centres is agreed thus enabling the coordinating team to focus on the incident. Resource Management (A case study)

26 Resource Management (A case study) In the event that the complexity or significance of the incident grows to such an extent that other government departments or nations have an interest and/or become involved, then: The National Maritime Operations Commander may choose for the NMOC to assume strategic command and control while utilising the team at the initiating Centre to focus on specific elements of the incident as appropriate

27 To provide a consistent service to mariners and avoid repeated passing of Transit reports. Traffic Separation Scheme reporting could be conducted by a operations teams at any location(s) operating on a rota to cover - Minch, Fair Isle, Pentland Firth, Lands End, The Smalls, North channel. The Dover strait TSS will remain the responsibility of the centre at Dover to meet CNIS obligations Traffic Reporting Schemes

28 A team of Officers on any given day according to workload can undertake the following services in discharge of the UK’s responsibilities: 1.Receipt of an alert in the event of a banned ship entering UK waters. 2.The requirement to monitor Single Hull Tankers 3.Requirement for an alert when vessels of interest to other Government departments enter UK waters.
