DHS’s New Boater Surveillance Program… "Boaters Have No Expectation of Privacy"


DHS/Coast Guard are spying on American boaters and they’re forcing
them to send their location to the Coast Guard every 15-30 seconds! ~ Videos

DHS is forcing boaters to purchase their own transponders which can go from $500 dollars to thousands of dollars! These transponders will ping their speed and location to DHS/Coast Guard, FOREIGN governments and the UN!

DHS/Coast Guard’s new boat-tracking system is called the “National Automatic Identification System” (NAIS). Click here to read more about DHS’s, NAIS system.




The International Maritime Organization (IMO)
requires AIS’s to be fitted aboard international ships with a gross
tonnage of 300 or more and all passenger ships regardless of size.

Fyi, the IMO is a United Nations organization! Why is the UN working with DHS to spy on EVERY ship in America and beyond?

This September I warned boaters about DHS’s plan to create a national boat surveillance program.

NAIS program exceeds the stated purpose of marine safety and
constitutes an ongoing risk to the privacy and civil liberties of
mariners across the United States.”

BoatU.S., the nation’s largest organization of recreational boaters, said that the
NAIS program “raises an array of confidentiality concerns with regard
to the recreational boating public” and pointed out that few boaters
would be aware that their boat location information would be made
available to parties other than boaters and the Coast Guard.

Below are some disturbing facts taken from the “Coast Guard Policy for the Sharing of Automatic Identification System” (NAIS)…

a broadcast system (where communications are intended to be received by
the public), there is no expectation of privacy with regard to any
information transmitted on AIS.”

information collected by NAIS with both governmental and
non-governmental entities will result in (1) improved navigation safety
and mariners’ situational awareness; (2) enhanced ability to identify
and track vessels; and (3) heightened overall awareness of global
maritime transactions to address threats to maritime transportation
safety and security. Enhanced safety and security facilitates economic
development, the free-flow of international commerce, and targeted
environmental protection and conservation efforts.”

The following levels pertain to information collected by NAIS:

“Level A is unfiltered (real-time) information collected by NAIS that is less than 96 hours from initial time of transmission. Level
A information may only be shared with U.S. or foreign government
agencies (“Level A Entities”) for legitimate internal government
use(i.e., law enforcement, maritime safety, defense, and security

DHS/Coast Guard has 90 days to decide if they want to keep their surveillance hidden from the public…

H. 90-Day Waiver. If the NAIS System Owner, Commandant (CG-761)
determines, in consultation with the local USCG unit, that it is in the
best interest of the U.S. government, they may authorize a temporary 90
day waiver to the information sharing guidelines contained in this
instruction in order to allow immediate NAIS information access if
needed, while the USCG confirms the information provided and completes
administrative requirements.”

The excerpts below are taken from the Coast Guard’s “Encrypted Automatic Identification System, Interface Design Description” which describe how often boaters MUST transmit their location. Dynamic Position Report: – 3 knots: “When
operating in the Restricted Mode (as defined in Section 3.3.2. of this
Annex), Report Rate for BFT Dynamic Position Reports (Message 8, FID
56) shall be 30 seconds when Speed Over Ground (SOG) is less than 3
knots for more than 3 minutes.” – 3 knots: “When
operating in the Restricted Mode (as defined in Section 3.3.2. of this
Annex), Report Rate for BFT Dynamic Position Reports (Message 8, FID
56) shall be 15 seconds when Speed Over Ground (SOG) is greater than 3
knots.” Target of Interest (TOI) Message:

operating in the Restricted Mode (as defined in Section 3.3.2 of this
Annex). Report Rate for the PI generated Target of Interest (TOI)
message shall be every 15 seconds until canceled.”
