Small Vessel Security Strategy Implementation Plan

The Small Vessel Security Strategy Implementation Plan is designed to manage risks associated with the potential exploitation of small vessels by terrorists in America's maritime­ - its ports, shores, and waterways.

The Implementation Plan encompasses the program elements that, when combined and tailored to local security requirements, will best meet the objectives and goals of the Small Vessel Security Strategy without imposing excessive limits or costs on our maritime community.

The program elements form a layered, "defense-in-depth" approach to small vessel security designed to thwart adversaries by raising the likelihood of detection through an array of operational techniques. They consist of ongoing activities that support the goals of the Small Vessel Security Strategy, and potential initiatives and areas of research and development, which aim to improve relevant strategic and operational capabilities.
