DOD Implements Suspicious Activity Reporting System

The Department of Defense has announced it will use the FBI-owned and maintained eGuardian suspicious activity reporting system as a long-term solution to ensure access to appropriate threat information. The announcement follows two years of analysis and a six-month pilot program, and a recommendation this past January by the DoD Independent Review related to the shootings at Fort Hood that DoD adopt a reporting system for documenting, storing, and exchanging threat information. Those using the system will be trained with regard to the protection of civil liberties. Through its use, DoD law enforcement and security personnel will be able to share potential terrorist threats, terrorist events, and suspicious activity information with other state, local, tribal, federal law enforcement agencies, state fusion centers, and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

NOAA Ocean Observing System Improves Safety and Efficiency of Ships

A new ocean observing system from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration now offers mariners free real-time information on water level, wind, and weather conditions for the Sabine-Neches Waterway of Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas. The so-called PORTS system provides observations of tides, currents, water and air temperature, barometric pressure, and wind speed, gusts and direction through an easy-to-use Web portal and by phone. NOAA officials say the system will significantly reduce the risk of vessel groundings and increase the amount of cargo moved though the waterway by enabling mariners to safely use nearly every inch of a channel. The system also allows big ships to time their arrivals and departures more efficiently. There are 19 such other PORTS systems located throughout the nation.
