Divisional Spotlight: OI Division

OI Division is at the heart of BULKELEY’s Combat Information Center (CIC) and includes 22 hard-working Operations Specialists (OS). The main function of CIC is to collect, process, evaluate and disseminate tactical information to the Bridge watch team. Such information is collected from radars, lookouts, voice communications, intelligence reports, and electronic emissions. In addition to its primary function of maintaining a tactical picture in order for the ship to defend itself, CIC also provides radar navigation/low visibility piloting for the ship and assists the Bridge during man overboard, search and rescue, and sea and anchor evolutions.
