Students conduct research on Detection Technology Synergies, HF Radar Data Integration and CBP Trade Facilitation in the 2013 SRI.

October 14, 2013

This past summer, CSR admitted thirteen students into its maritime security-centric Summer Research Institute (SRI).  The program included students from Stevens Institute of Technology, Elizabeth City State University, Essex County College and the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez.  The students were organized into the following research teams under the mentorship of CSR researchers:

  • Detection Technology Synergies Team: The students in the Detection Technology Synergies team assessed the tipping and cuing of sensor technologies, utilizing Stevens Passive Acoustic Detection System and Rutgers University’s HF radar detection systems.
  • HF Radar Data Integration Team: Students in the HF radar team assisted in developing advanced algorithms for improved vessel detection and assessed methods for integrating CSR’s HF Radar data feeds into Coast Guard operational systems.
  • CBP Trade Facilitation Team: Students in the CBP Trade Facilitation team conducted a case study on the effectiveness of CBP’s new Centers of Excellence and Expertise (CEEs) for enhanced safety, security and trade processing within the pharmaceutical industry.
