The article focuses on the operational improvements of the Coast Guard's Deepwater modernization program in the U.S. The Coast Guard officials state that any mission gaps are being addressed by re-allocating existing assets. They added that although, they suffered a major setback, they tend to accelerate by replacing the old patrol. They will purchase at least 12 new cutters based patrol craft that are already in use in another nation.
