National Maritime Security Advisory Committee
The Coast Guard published in the Federal Register of January 9, 2012, a notice announcing a National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC) public meeting on January 18-19, 2012, in Arlington, VA. This notice corrects that previous notice to add an explanation for why 15-days advance notice was not given.
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement: Technology To Provide Wireless Precise Time; Alternatives to Global Positioning Systems
The Coast Guard is announcing its intent to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with UrsaNav, Inc., to research, evaluate, and document at least one alternative to Global Positioning Systems (GPS) as a means of providing precise time. The alternative under consideration is a wireless technical approach for providing precise time using U.S. government facilities and frequency authorizations. The Coast Guard invites public comment on the proposed CRADA and also invites other non-Federal participants, who have the interest and capability to bring similar contributions to this type of research, to consider entry into similar CRADAs.
