  • CCICADA Initiates the DMARA Project to aid the Coast Guard's Resource Allocation Challenges in the Arctic: The Arctic is a major area of emphasis for the U. S. Coast Guard (USCG) because of the rapidly changing climate and resulting impact on ice conditions and the stress on USCG areas of responsibility. Following on two visits to USCG District 17 (D17) offices in Juneau, Alaska, by CCICADA partners from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), CCICADA has reached agreement with D17 to undertake a project to formulate models designed to analyze and support decisions concerning current, anticipated, and proposed operations of the Coast Guard in the Arctic, specifically in the Bering Strait region. The Dynamic Modeling for Arctic Resource Allocation (DMARA) project has been developed in conjunction with USCG D17 leadership, and USCG D17 Operations and Logistics staff, consistent with D17 Arctic Shield 2013 priorities.
