The WOPL supports the Aids to Navigation (ATON) and Marine Environmental Response (MER) Coast Guard missions by providing engineering solutions, systems acquisition, configuration management, production and delivery, logistics and maintenance, and technical policy guidance for the Coast Guard-wide inventory of ATON and MER equipment and systems. This support encompasses the entire lifecycle of ATON and MER equipment and systems, from acquisition through disposal. 
"The Waterways Operations Product Line will provide critical engineering and logistics requirements for effective waterways maintenance and environmental response in the consistently expanding Maritime Transportation System,"said Cmdr. Rasmussen.
