Threat

Disrupting maritime commerce and freedom of navigation into the United States could create a nearly instantaneous global economic recession or depression


April 2005 GAO report on maritime security emphasizes a need for “information sharing among port security stakeholders”

USCG Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (e-NOA/D) provides an online web based and an off-line versions

Motivation

Government Agency Initiative

US Port Security

Intelligence

Law Enforcement Initiative

Public Sector Initiative

CACI Technologies Inc. proposal to create a Web-based information portal that can enable the various security and government agencies to share and exchange information currently available in their respective databases


96 hour pre-arrival notice information

  • ship’s flag state administration

  • Owner

  • Operator

  • Cargo type

  • Classification society

  • Last port of call

  • Next port of call

  • US port state control boarding history

  • etc

Assessment

E-NOA/D

Does this risk assessment process identify how the ship is owned, managed, financed, chartered (Y or N)?


How thorough is the current “at sea” law enforcement sweep?

  • Purpose

    • Assurances - those on board are who they say they are

    • Those on board prevented from doing harm?

  • Effectiveness

    • Limited in scope (visual only)

    • Disallowed from entering confined spaces e.g., pump room, hazardous locations on gas ships, etc.

    • Multitude of hiding spaces remain not inspected

  • Result

    • Commercial Delays OR Effective Terrorist Incident Deterrent?


Vulnerabilities

Al Queda is presently operating dozens of freight ships worldwide

No interactive real-time communication with shipping and chartering company representatives

  • Lack of knowledge about the overall commercial shipping enterprise could be resolved:

  • Ship management

  • Shipping Company Security Officer

  • Crew management

  • Ship’s maintenance

  • Regulatory compliance culture of the shipping company

  • Screening process for newly hired seafarers

  • Ship’s charter

  • Ship’s finances – ability to pay port fees


Model


The more thorough solution: combining processes


Benefits/Merits of Web Query

  • Create a virtual US sea border

  • Interactive real time interrogation process

  • Distinguish security conscientious shipping companies i.e.," Green Lane” concept

  • Decrease unnecessary in-port security-related delays for compliant shipping companies

  • Make ship ownership and ship management transparent to port state control

  • Reduce the number and a need for ineffectual at-sea Law Enforcement sweeps

  • Create a more comprehensive database about the non-national shipping industry

  • Future use of video and biometric assessments
