Question USCG Rescue 21

Maybe I've been out cruising too long, or I'm having a sustained senior moment, but I just discovered something which many of you may already be aware, and that is the U.S. Coast Guard's new Rescue 21 System.

Of course we are all aware of the DSC VHF radio, with the little red flapper on it which says 'Distress'. But I wasn't aware that the Coast Guard was implementing an entirely new program which seems to be based on it.

Here are a couple of links:

Can You Hear Me?

Is this Rescue 21 new information and I'm just out of the loop, or is this something new that just isn't well publicized yet?

Maybe it's the rum.
