USCG Partners with Alaska Nonprofit

The partnership will provide information, communications, and services to aid safe, secure, and environmentally responsible maritime operations around Alaska.

The U.S. Coast Guard has partnered with the Marine Exchange of Alaska (MXAK), a nonprofit maritime organization, to provide critical navigational safety information digitally to Arctic mariners, according to a Nov. 14 post on the Coast Guard's blog that says "extensive seasonal melting of sea ice, reduction of multi-year ice and increase in first-year ice throughout the Arctic has generated an increase in maritime traffic," posing some additional risk.

The partnership will provide information, communications, and services to aid safe, secure, and environmentally responsible maritime operations around Alaska.

The post says the Coast Guard Research and Development Center in New London, Conn., is part of a Next Generation Arctic Navigational Safety Information System project to provide reliable navigational safety information.
