Whether it's network bandwidth, acquisitions, cybersecurity, or the Joint Information Environment, Rear Admiral Bob Day, Chief Information Officer of the U.S. Coast Guard has been involved in answering the service's information technology challenges. In this edition of "AFCEA Answers", Adm. Day, who also serves as Commander of Coast Guard Cyber Command, reflects on his 5 years as CIO, and his 34 years of military service as he prepares to retire this summer. He considers IT to be a "mission enabler" for the Coast Guard, and points to the recently deployed "Rescue 21" shipboard communications system, which he says, "is taking the ‘search' out of search-and-rescue."
