Coast Guard’s Kendall Joins PTIG Board
Monday, February 24, 2020 | Comments

Sonia Kendall with the U.S. Coast Guard joined the Project 25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG) board of directors.

Kendall is assigned to the Office of Enterprise Architecture and Technology Innovation (CG-67) as the Coast Guard’s communications interoperability coordinator for public-safety communications. In this position, she coordinates interoperability efforts of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), federal, state and local port partners. Additionally, she represents the Coast Guard in national telecom standards, regulatory and advisory organizations, and she liaises with Coast Guard program managers affected by these standards and regulations. Kendall also oversees long-range communications and Coast Guard record messaging from programmatic and policy perspectives.

“Sonia’s experience with Project 25 (P25) interoperable communications and her longstanding participation in the TIA TR-8 P25 standards process makes her an ideal addition to our board,” said Stephen Nichols, PTIG director. “Many of our P25 user agencies require reliable interoperable communications with the U.S. Coast Guard, and Sonia can help establish and maintain these relationships. She can well represent the specific user needs from the U.S. Coast Guard perspective.”

Prior to this assignment, Kendall was active duty Coast Guard and served as the satellite communications asset manager. Her 25-year Navy/Coast Guard active duty career was solely focused in control, communications, computers and IT-related work.
