The Regional Maritime Improvement Program (RMIP) is a flexible and adaptable, regionally-based engagement and advocacy program to improve Maritime Domain Awareness for U.S. federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, international, private and public partners. Our partners are a domestic subset of the Global Maritime Community of Interest (GMCOI) focused on law enforcement partnerships. The goal of RMIP is to help maritime stakeholders effectively share data from within organizational stovepipes with other GMCOI members in order to counter threats to safety, security, economical and the environment within the maritime domain.
Currently, there are RMIP efforts underway in the Mid-Atlantic, Southern California, the Great Lakes. New RMIP efforts in Florida will commence later this year. Key partners include ODNI, DHS, DoD, fusion centers, state and local law enforcement and port partners.
