Executive Summary

To increase Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) among watchstanders in command centers within U.S. ports and waterways, the United States Coast Guard embarked on an initiative called Project Hawkeye, which can monitor the waters 20 miles (32 km) from the coast. The Hawkeye system consists of long-range optical cameras, RADAR, a Geographic Information System, a vessel identification system and a web portal for sharing information with port partners. When it came time to interconnect Hawkeye's surveillance equipment, the Coast Guard found it difficult to obtain a backhaul system that could meet their technical requirements while functioning reliably in the marine environment and weather conditions. After evaluating several alternatives, they finally selected a point-to-point system from Motorola that met and exceeded their expectations.
