DHS Congratulates MTS

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

The Marine Technology Society was recently honored by the Department of Homeland Security with a letter identifying the content of its May/June 2011 issue of the MTS Journal as one of “paramount importance to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).” The MTS Journal focused its issue on maritime domain awareness and port resilience research and development.
The letter, from Tara O’Toole, M.D., M.P.H., Undersecretary for Science and Technology, noted
“I appreciate that MTS has showcased the research underway at the DHS Science & Technology Directorate (S&T) Center of Excellence (COE) for Maritime and Port Security. This COE’s work complements S&T’s other research and development efforts in support of the DHS components whose mission it is to secure our coasts and ports, particularly the United States Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection. Achieving awareness and transparency in the maritime domain has been a goal for the Nation for some time. The MTS Journal’s focus on the COE’s work both contributes to the body of scientific knowledge and extends S&T’s ability to share its discoveries with stakeholders who can use them…I intend to share this Journal issue widely with our stakeholders.”
Said Executive Director Rich Lawson of the Marine Technology Society (MTS) “A significant aspect of MTS’ mission is the dissemination of all aspects of marine technology information. We are honored by Under Secretary O’Toole’s commendation of our efforts to focus on the critical topic of maritime security.”
