Coast Guard: Emerging Tech

Empowering Digital Transformation: Navigate the Future with Agile Solutions and Modernized Systems


A fast-paced digital landscape requires that government agencies implement agile development with comprehensive support and advanced security measures for their systems and applications. Legacy systems and applications can often struggle to keep pace with evolving operational needs, becoming a hindrance to mission delivery and optimal productivity.

Our team of digital transformation experts offer emerging technologies and digital services that focus on agile development, adaptive maintenance, and the enhancement of systems and applications. Let’s dive into the latest research in Emerging Tech and apply those best practices to the United States Coast Guard (USCG).


Explore how our technology research can contribute to tackling practical challenges and improve both existing and future USCG systems.

Aligning Agile Development Practices with Full Lifecycle Support Requirements

September 18, 2023 Navigating the vast seas of digital transformation, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) faces the immense challenge of managing its complex portfolio throughout their entire lifecycle. Agile development methodologies offer a compelling solution, enabling iterative, customer-centric, and collaborative practices. By integrating Agile principles into full lifecycle support, the USCG can benefit from increased responsiveness to changing requirements, improved collaboration among stakeholders, and a faster delivery of high-quality software products. This white paper charts the course for this Agile transformation, placing emphasis on building teams, tools, and a culture conducive to change.

Adopting Agile Practices: A Key to Modernizing Legacy Systems

Discover how Agile methodologies are revitalizing aging Federal legacy systems in our recent article. Dive deeper into an exemplary case where the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), used Agile in their Electronic Immigration System (ELIS) transformation, aided by TechSur. The project, focused on the Form I-90 application and USCIS Immigrant Fee Payment platform, leveraged Agile principles for weekly system updates, user feedback, and continuous improvement, resulting in constant enhancements, efficient problem-solving, and heightened user satisfaction.

The primary drivers for IT modernization at government organizations, according to a recent Splunk survey, include replacing aging systems (52%), improving the delivery of mission objectives and citizen experience (48%), and enhancing security posture and reducing agency risk (37%). The urgent need for modernization stems from the vulnerability and high maintenance costs of older systems, and their lack of flexibility and agility to integrate with modern IT systems, which results in difficulty in maintaining service levels and customer experience on par with private sector counterparts.
