In conjunction with the Office of Information Technology,  the Office of Security continues to improve MarView, an integrated data-driven environment providing essential information to support the strategic requirement of the U.S. Marine Transportation System (MTS) and its contribution to the economic viability of the Nation. The MARVIEW portal provides MARAD’s key connection to the maritime industry and interagency and provides a wealth of data and information designed to improve the safety, security, environmental compliance and efficiencies in the marine transportation system.

MarView provides the ability to fuse data together to create models and simulations for capacity planning, economic impact analysis, on-demand forecasting, plans for mitigating and reacting to emergency situations.

The POC(s) for agency efforts in this area of concern are Owen Doherty, Director, Office of Security (202) 366-1883, or Robert Ford, Acting Director/Office of Security, (202) 366-0223,
