Technology, Resiliency, and Maritime Domain Awareness with Dr. Michael Bruno from Stevens Institute of Technology

NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

As our Nation faces the long-term struggle against radical extremism in a period of persistent conflict, those responsible for Maritime Security must be prepared to conduct operations across a broad spectrum of threats and hazards. To improve preparedness and increase Maritime Domain Awareness, it is vital to ensure the widespread dissemination of successful initiatives and policy updates regarding Maritime Security.

In keeping with these initiatives, Dr. Michael Bruno spoke with IDGA's Senior Editor Nick Yonker on technology development to support Maritime Domain Awareness and MTS (News - Alert) Resiliency. Dr. Michael Bruno, Dean of the School of Engineering and Science and Professor of Ocean Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, discusses activities at the Center for Secure and Resilient Maritime Commerce and Coastal Environments (CSR (News - Alert)) where he is serves as Director. Also, Dr. Bruno details the primary activities at CSR and discusses technology development working to support Maritime Domain Awareness.
