In order to ensure the operational liberty of its operatives, much of the work the Corps does is kept from the public. However, there are key areas on which it focuses. They include: patrolling Federal systems for human trafficking and transportation of illegal commodities; investigating organised piracy as well as pursuing criminals to systems outside of Federal Security jurisdiction. Patrolling High Security systems in undercover ships ensures that, through random stops, their security status is maintained.
The Corps is under the direct control of the Federal Navy Joint Operations High Command, on call for President Hudson.
Corps deployed as vanguard for Admiral Tanner's battle fleet.
