Though not located on the Marine Deck, the CIC is nonetheless a Marine facility.
Location: Deck 1
The CIC is secured at all times with a marine stationed on the bridge at all times guarding the door.
The Marine Commanding officer can monitor and control all aspects of a Marine mission from the CIC and will also use the CIC as a secure conference room should it be deemed necessary.
Access to the CIC is generally limited to the Marine command staff, Marine CIC personnel and the ship's Captain, Executive Officer, Strategic Operations Officer, Chief Tactical Officer and at times the Chief Intelligence Officer.
