The 56th Meeting of the Civil GPS Service Interface Committee (CGSIC), was held September 12-13, 2016, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, in conjunction with the Institute Of Navigation’s Global Navigation Satellite System conference.
Over the past summer and into the fall, the Coast Guard Navigation Center (NAVCEN) completed four Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) operational assessments of the New York, Corpus Christie, Puget Sound and Tampa regions.
The Coast Guard is expanding Automatic Identification System (AIS) requirements to include additional commercial vessels.
Machine-readable format shapefiles now available on the NAVCEN’s website which allows anyone with Google Earth or ARCGIS to easily plot the International Ice Patrol’s ice flow products on a daily basis
