Command Post 2.0: New York State Naval Militia Upgrades Systems

Chief Petty Officer Bob Morisseau of the New York State Naval Militia (NYSNM) tests a newly-installed computerized automatic identification system aboard the NYSNM’s upgraded mobile command post at the New York Army National Guard armory here on March 10. The system and computerized map displays real-time information on boat traffic in whatever New York state waterway the militia is operating in. Militia members, New York Guard members and New York Army National Guard communications experts also tested the command post’s newly-installed radios here on March 10 and 16. The new features will improve the NYSNM’s ability to communicate and coordinate with New York National Guard units. The NYSNM and the New York Guard are part of the New York State defense forces and can be mobilized for state-active duty, as was the case during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The NYSNM is the naval component of the New York State defense forces. Morisseau is from Albany, N.Y. (photo courtesy of NYSNM/released)
