National Center for Secure and Resilient Maritime Commerce releases annual report

HOBOKEN, N.J. ―The Center for Secure and Resilient Maritime Commerce (CSR) at Stevens Institute of Technology has released its first annual report.

Stevens was named by the US Department of Homeland Security in 2008 as one of five national Centers of Excellence and was selected to lead a national research effort to address Port Security. Stevens was one of 11 universities to partner with the DHS and serve as an important team members for conducting multi-disciplinary research and creating innovative learning environments for critical homeland security missions.

Among its first-year accomplishments, the Center's research and its members were instrumental following the emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River and the August 2009 mid-air collision of a helicopter and a small plane over the Hudson River.

Federal funding for the Center of Excellence in Port Security was the result of a highly selective, national competition among research universities and did not involve any congressional earmarks. The grant is highly specific, controlled and audited.
