In the course of a day, seven to eleven AMICC watch standers routinely select an average of 2,900 tracks (out of tens of thousands) for special, detailed examination.
Careful analysis and prompt information exchange with other governmental agencies and with private entities dears the vast majority of unusual tracks, but almost every day the AMICC initiates intercepts by Customs aircraft.
Fortunately, software tools in use at the AMICC and at other government agencies such as the National Security Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office have shown that the manning requirements for a full maritime watch can be quite small.
