One of the primary responsibilities of
the Auxiliary Aid to Navigation Program is the reporting of
discrepancies observed on Federal Short Range Aids to Navigation (ATONs). It
is only when the local CG ANT (Aids to Navigation Team) learns of a
problem that they can then fix it. The Auxiliary ATON program has
two main responsibilities:
Reporting of any discrepancies
observed on a federal ATON. If doesn't matter whether the
problem is observed while on patrol or on a pleasure cruise -
any problems observed should be reported.
Verifying the location and
condition of ATONs when directed by the C.G. This is
normally only done after a major storm comes through the area
and the CG issues Auxiliary tasking for this.
ATON Discrepancies should be
reported using the form below. See the
Report Routing page for information on where to send it.
