|Title:||Military Special Use Airspace within the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico|
Military Special Use Airspace is airspace of defined dimensions identified by an area on the surface of the earth wherein activities must be confined because of their nature, and/or wherein limitations may be imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of those activities (FAA Order 7610.4K CHG 1, Section 1.3). Limitations may be imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of the airspace activities. Special use airspace includes any associated underlying surface and subsurface training areas. The types of SUA are Special Use Airspace (SUA), Alert Area, Controlled Firing Area, Military Operating Area (MOA), Special Operation Area (SOA), Prohibited Area, Restricted Area, Warning Area and Altitude Reservations (ALTRV). DoD Special Use Airspace (SUA) from the NGA Digital Aeronautical Flight Information File (DAFIF).
The MarineCadastre.gov team worked with the Navy to provide this data, which is a subset of the Navy's Common Operating Picture, for ocean planning purposes. This data was downloaded on August 11, 2017. Any questions about access to or the content of the data should be directed to the Navy at email@example.com.
To support ocean planning activities pursuant to the Executive Order Regarding the Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States, the Energy Policy Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.

Process Step 1
1. Go to Navy EIMS and login, download latest COP_Atlantic_GOMEX.zip
2. Unzip files, find and copy the feature class within the "military_operations" feature dataset named "mil_special_use_airspace_area" into a new file geodatabase.
3. RENAME file to "MilitarySpecialUseAirspaceAreas"
4. CHECK GEOMETRY and set the CRS to NAD83 GRS 80.
5. Export metadata XML and tailor to include minor edits and distribution information for NOAA Office for Coastal Management. Included having to add in attribute definitions as these were missing.
