Gen. Pelletier was accompanied by NORAD Director of Intelligence Brigadier General Parker H. Wright.

Maritime warning is the sharing of intelligence across Canadian and United States federal agencies, organizations, and security partners to build global maritime domain awareness.

NORAD works in close collaboration with homeland defense, security, and law enforcement partners to respond to aerospace and maritime threats to North America; safeguard the sovereign airspaces of the United States and Canada by responding to unknown, unwanted, and unauthorized air activity approaching and operating within these airspaces.
