National Security Cutter Special Report


This special report on the National Security Cutter focuses on the key role which this capability plays for the USCG and its missions.  The NSC is unique in providing for both defense and security missions provided for by the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.  It is less a ship than a command platform able to mobilize assets to execute its missions.  It is in the words of Captain Bardo, “a chaos management system.”
