The structure is fully maintained by the practicing companies themselves, without the contribution of any public resource, related to the maintenance of the speedboats, the 24-hour operation of their Operations Centers, the training of their employees, the acquisition and maintenance of communication, computer and traffic coordination systems.
The practical work is regulated by the Navy, which establishes strict standards of action.
