Abstract
The development of Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) is a multi-faceted and multi-departmental activity within the Canadian Government. In the development of MDA, many data and information sources are brought together or aggregated to help formulate an awareness of vessel activity in and approaching Canadian waters. DND research and development focused on MDA often encounters the issue of data/information distribution to partners or collaborators. In an effort to establish a common understanding of data distribution to partners or collaborators, this report uses several data distribution use cases, combined with an examination of existing security guidelines, to formulate conclusions regarding the distribution of MDA-relevant data/information to partners both internal and external to government. One important conclusion is that distribution of non-real-time Automatic Identification System (AIS) data should not be designated. This work provides the guidance necessary for future data/information distribution especially with external organizations such as academia.
