Maritime Domain Awareness Information Hubs. What are They, and What Do They Do?
This article discusses how achieving maritime domain awareness is a daunting challenge, especially in view of the vast community of stakeholders. To better connect to this global maritime community of interest—or even to find out who they are—the National Concept of Operations for Maritime Domain Awareness called for creating “enterprise hubs” focused on people, cargo, vessels, critical infrastructure, and architecture. Since then, two distinctly different types of enterprise hubs have emerged. The MDA Information Hub is an MDA enterprise hub focusing on a specific MDA “pillar,” identified as cargo, people, infrastructure, and vessel. The MDA Architecture Management Hub assists the federal information sharing environment for the global maritime community of interest (GMCOI) by establishing national data and infrastructure standards and capabilities.
