Startups Sought for Maritime Object Tracking Technology

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate Silicon Valley Innovation Program is seeking start-ups for the development of Maritime Object Tracking Technology that could aid US Coast Guard missions.

“During the course of normal operations, Coast Guard aircraft and vessels come across numerous types of jettisoned objects, and navigation hazards that need to be recovered from the seas and waterways,” said Wendy Chaves, US Coast Guard Chief of Research, Development, Test and Evaluation and Innovation. “The USCG is interested in tracking solutions that are interoperable with current USCG maritime and aviation assets.”

A Homeland Security Day hosted by the program and USCG is scheduled for March 4 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Menlo Park, Calif.
