   NEW U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY SYSTEM, WHICH
   REPRESENTS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT UPDATE
   SINCE 1939 TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT PROCESS
   FOR ISSUING MARITIME SECURITY ALERTS AND
   ADVISORIES. THE NEW SYSTEM ESTABLISHES A
   SINGLE FEDERAL PROCESS TO EXPEDITIOUSLY
   PROVIDE MARITIME THREAT INFORMATION TO
   MARITIME INDUSTRY STAKEHOLDERS INCLUDING
   VESSELS AT SEA. IN RESPONSE TO VALUABLE
   FEEDBACK FROM STAKEHOLDERS, THE MARITIME
   ADVISORY SYSTEM WAS DEVELOPED TO STREAMLINE,
   CONSOLIDATE, AND REPLACE MARITIME THREAT
   INFORMATION PREVIOUSLY DISSEMINATED IN THREE
   SEPARATE GOVERNMENT AGENCY INSTRUMENTS:
   SPECIAL WARNINGS, MARAD ADVISORIES, AND
   GLOBAL MARITIME SECURITY RELATED MARINE
   SAFETY INFORMATION BULLETINS.
2. THE U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY SYSTEM INCLUDES
   TWO TYPES OF NOTIFICATIONS: A U.S. MARITIME
   ALERT AND A U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY.
   MARITIME ALERTS QUICKLY PROVIDE BASIC
   THREAT INFORMATION TO THE MARITIME INDUSTRY.
   WHEN AMPLIFYING INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE,
   A MORE DETAILED U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY MAY
   BE ISSUED ON A THREAT AND COULD INCLUDE
   RECOMMENDATIONS AND IDENTIFY AVAILABLE
   RESOURCES. U.S. MARITIME ALERTS AND
   U.S. MARITIME ADVISORIES WILL BE BROADCAST
   BY THE NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE
   AGENCY, EMAILED TO MARITIME INDUSTRY
   STAKEHOLDERS, AND POSTED TO THE MARITIME
   SECURITY COMMUNICATIONS WITH INDUSTRY (MSCI)
   WEB PORTAL, AT www.marad.dot.gov/MSCI/.
3. THE U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY SYSTEM IS A
   WHOLE-OF-GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION MECHANISM.
   THE DEPARTMENTS OF STATE, DEFENSE, JUSTICE,
   TRANSPORTATION, AND HOMELAND SECURITY, AND
   THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY, SUPPORTED THE
   DEVELOPMENT OF THIS NEW SYSTEM. IN
   COORDINATION WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM
   THE U.S. MARITIME INDUSTRY THROUGH THE
   ALERTS, WARNINGS AND NOTIFICATIONS WORKING
   GROUP.
4. QUESTIONS REGARDING THE U.S. MARITIME ADVISORY
   SYSTEM MAY BE EMAILED TO MARADSecurity@dot.gov.
