The Coast Guard set standards for streamlining information and data transfer between state, federal and local partners, Adm. Mark Butt of the Coast Guard said at a committee hearing on improving the use and integration of maritime defense-awareness data in maritime transportation.
The new standard is Ozone Widget Framework, an open-source Web application. In the future, DHS could require Coast Guard partners receiving federal money to comply with the Ozone Widget Architecture, Butt confirmed at the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation subcommittee hearing.
Setting the standard is part of a larger effort by the Coast Guard to streamline information and data flow between the Coast Guard and its partners.
