Maritime Security Response Team (MSRT) has existed in different incarnations, but was formally established in 2006.

It is one of two units within the Coast Guard that has counter-terrorism capabilities to conduct action against hostile targets.

This is the U.S. Coast Guard’s own special forces unit that rivals the training and mission capacity of SOCOM.

The USCG MSRT acts as first responders to domestic terrorist situations both on land and sea.
