The 9th Annual Maritime Security West is the thirty-second maritime security program hosted by Homeland Security Outlook since 2011. Maritime Security West furthers a commitment to address the needs of federal, state and local agencies, law enforcement and military to counter the challenges of securing coastlines, inland waterways, ports and critical infrastructure.  With it’s proximity to the U.S./Mexico border, the program will also address cross border collaboration and information sharing.

Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO)’s MDA ESC Excellence Award to be presented at Maritime Security West

In support of the stated goals of the National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan (NMDAP), the National MDA Executive Steering Committee establishes an annual national level maritime domain awareness award program “MDA ESC Excellence Award” to recognize exemplary stakeholder members of the Global Maritime Community of Interest (GMCOI), whose accomplishments have made a significant contribution to improving the effective understanding of the maritime domain in the United States and its territories. This includes the US Federal interagency, US Intelligence Community (IC), state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies, international partners, academia, and maritime industry.

Saildrone:  Explorer Unmanned Surface Vehicle

The Saildrone Explorer is a 23-foot uncrewed surface vehicle (USV), powered primarily by renewable wind and solar power, giving them a minimal carbon footprint. Equipped with a payload of metocean sensors and 360º cameras with machine learning-enabled target detection and near-real-time user notification, Saildrone Explorers are designed to make ocean intelligence cost-effective at scale. Saildrones operate 24/7/365, without the need for a crewed support vehicle, and have sailed 750,000+ nautical miles from the Arctic to the Antarctic and spent 17,000+ days at sea in the harshest ocean conditions on the planet.
