Technologists Breakout Sessions

Remotely Operated andAutonomous Systems

Remotely operated and autonomous systems represent significant enabling technologies in the port and maritime domains. These systems offer the capability to carry sensors or intervene directly under conditions hazardous to personnel in the air, on the surface, and below. Many
of these systems offer increased range and endurance, as well as reduced size and logistics footprint when compared to their manned counterparts, making them a force multiplier.

This breakout discussion will be conducted to facilitate collaboration and identification of field experiments to be conducted with remotely operated and autonomous systems to evaluate performance, validate operational applications and novel concepts of employment, mitigate gaps
in current capability, and remove barriers to implementation.

Facilitated by: Todd Jacobs (NOAA)

Visualization and Decision Support Tools

The inherent value of information is limited by the extent to which it can be leveraged to take action. The information required to develop and maintain situational awareness during even routine operations is difficult to process without the support of tools to assist in categorization, prioritization, and visualization. The complex and dynamic environment associated with regional emergency response and consequence management operations further compounds this difficulty, making tools to support situational awareness and decision-making an imperative.

This breakout discussion will be conducted to facilitate collaboration and identification of field experiments to be conducted with tools that can be used to develop and maintain situational awareness and support decision-making in a complex and dynamic operational environment.

Facilitated by: Aaron Marks (Dynamis)

Sensors and Data Links

The ability to develop and maintain situational awareness and respond to the operational environment is dependent on available capabilities to collect and disseminate information. In the port and maritime domains, the inherent lack of communications infrastructure and large geographic distances make this collection and dissemination even more difficult.

This breakout discussion will be conducted to facilitate collaboration and identification of field experiments to be conducted with sensors and data links to evaluate performance, validate operational applications and novel concepts of employment, and mitigate gaps in current capability.

Facilitated by Ian Pinkham and Will Michael (NASA JPL)

Who Should Attend?

Students are invited to participate from 0915–1200 observe technologies and demonstrations in the MAST Open House as well as meet with real-life industry pros to discover maritime industry career paths during the Maritime Career Exploration Day fair.

Companies are welcome to participate in the Maritime Career Exploration Day occurring simultaneously with the MAST Expo and Open House from 1030-1200.

Educators are encouraged to attend the entire event and will have a specific STEM discussion from 1515-1600 to explore ways to leverage and interact with the Port and the Coastal Trident Program to further their academic programs.
