CSR is hosting its 4th annual Summer Research Institute this summer at the Stevens Institute of Technology campus in Hoboken, NJ. Thirteen engineering and science students, representing Stevens Institute of Technology, Elizabeth City State University and the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez have been selected to engage in hands-on maritime security-centric research projects this summer in collaboration with CSR researchers, visiting faculty members and CSR stakeholders.
The students have been organized into three research teams focused on Detection Technology Synergies, HF Radar Data Integration and a CBP Trade Facilitation case study. The students have been interacting closely with CSR stakeholders and recently attended a field visit to the National Urban Security Laboratory (NUSTL), and participated in a New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness table top exercise at Maher Terminals in Port NY/Newark.
Student participants will be responsible for submitting final research reports and presentations to CSR researchers and invited guests from industry and government at the completion of their eight week program.
