Abstract:

This report presents the findings of the Maritime Information Sharing Taskforce MIST research effort for the Washington State Puget Sound ports. Using a participatory design approach, the researchers partnered with federal and commercial stakeholders to assess the information sharing needs of security personnel in this port region. The research design included an issues workshop, field studies of port personnel, and local networking events. The findings indicate the need for increased interagency collaboration in maritime domain awareness MDA and highlight local recommended practices and incentives for information sharing with the private sector. In addition, we gathered usability data on two federal policiesprograms.
