Maritime Domain Awareness Architecture Management Hub Strategy
"The Department of the Navy has been designated as the national lead for designing the Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) enterprise architecture. Execution of this responsibility has been delegated to the DON Chief Information Officer. This strategy outlines how the DON CIO intends to carry out these responsibilities by leading an interagency effort to identify the standards and procedures that will allow maritime stakeholders to exchange MDA data and information more effectively, thus allowing leaders to make more timely and informed decisions in support of the nation's safety, security, economy and environment. By incorporating information assurance safeguards, the MDA enterprise architecture will ensure data is protected and accessable only to appropriate individuals."
