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.
