Maritime Interdiction Leaders Join to Improve Capabilities

Thursday, December 07, 2006
Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City (NSWC PC)hosted organizational leaders at a conference Nov. 28-29 to organize the development of Expanded Maritime Interdiction Operations (EMIO)-related communications capabilities. EMIO refers to national and international partnerships of military and maritime law-enforcement entities which detain, divert, disrupt, or destroy vessels used to conduct illegal or hostile activities. “This was a good forum for gathering several organizations to coordinate and develop EMIO technologies,” said Cmdr. John Funn, assistant program manager for Expeditionary Systems, a division within Program Executive Office, Littoral Mine Warfare Afloat-Antiterrorism Program Office.

According to Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Customer Advocate Harry Guthmuller, the conference focused discussions on EMIO-related capabilities. Chief of DTRA’s Technology Innovation Office Matthew Holm explained that the conference was highly beneficial due to the availability of a wide representation of experience.
