USCGC CYPRESS demonstrated a stead- fast ability to safeguard the maritime trans- portation system across the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. CYPRESS’ execution of aids to navigation (ATON), waterways management, marine environmental pro- tection, and other law enforcement activi- ties promoted a safe, efficient and environ- mentally sound transportation system. CYPRESS’ execution of primary ATON exceeded Commandant performance met- rics with aid availability consistently above 99.5 percent and calculation of ATON serviced on time at 99 percent. This en- sured safe navigation across District Eight, including 17 of the nation’s 40 top tonnage ports and an expansive offshore zone with more than 6,500 oil and gas platforms. In 2015, CYPRESS was also critical in

supporting US maritime transportation interests throughout the Caribbean during the yearlong mid-life decommissioning of USCGC OAK. Covering twice the normal area of responsibility, CYPRESS provided superior cross-district and international ATON support throughout Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. In addition, CYPRESS collaborated across

government agencies to decrease waste and improve efficiency of the maritime transpor- tation system. During 2015, CYPRESS proved time and again its versatility, efficiency and interagency collaboration to support a healthy maritime transportation system in some of the nation’s busiest and most di- verse waterways.
