   off the U.S. coast to extend the reach of a security system that
   monitors large vessels heading in and out of ports. The buoys are
   intended to extend the network's reach -- the Guard now receives the
   automated data only when a vessel is within about 25 miles of a port.
   The floating transmitters will relay the information from hundreds of
   miles off shore, from the middle of Lake Superior and off coastlines
   from Alaska to Maine."
