Performing a full range of tactical command, control, and communications duties, Operations Specialists serve as a vital component in the Coast Guard command structure.
Synthesizing information from satellite communications, global position navigation, and electronic target identification and tracking systems, they provide commanders with real time data to enhance their decision-making capabilities. Relying on their expertise in advanced tactical information systems operation, they aid in the completion of everything from search and rescue and law enforcement case execution to combat information center and intelligence missions.
