The Future of Navigation / 21st Century Waterways initiative is a collaborative Federal Government effort to effectively integrate information to establish a framework that enables the transfer of data between and among ships and shore facilities, and that integrates and transforms that data into decisions and action information.

Welcome to the United States Coast Guard (USCG) feedback website for the Future of Navigation / 21st Century Waterways initiative. This feedback mechanism is designed to officially record any facts or opinions obtained or solicited at or in connection with the public listening sessions conducted directly for the Future of Navigation / 21st Century Waterways initiative.

While submitting your feedback, please remember that the primary objective of the United States Aids to Navigation System (USATONS) is to mitigate transit risks to promote the safe, economic, and efficient movement of military, commercial, and other vessels by assisting navigators with determining their position, determining a safe course, and warning them of dangers and obstructions.

With the combined efforts of the United States Coast Guard (USCG), the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), our goal is to continue to leverage emerging technologies where best suited to further meet this purpose.
