Maritime Data Acquisition and Sharing Technologies: International Opportunities to Enhance Maritime Domain Awareness [open pdf - 4MB]
"The Global Maritime Forum (GMF) evolved from a multinational initiative that began in 2005, the Global Futures Forum. In May 2012, National Maritime IntelligenceIntegration Office (NMIO) supported Singapore's Centre of Excellence for National Security workshop on 'The Geostrategic Implications of Cyberspace' in Singapore. In September 2012, in Rome, NMIO co-sponsored, with the Italian Navy and Centro Alti Studi per la Difesa, another Global Futures Forum on the theme of 'The Role of Maritime in WMD Transportation and Global Supply Chain Security.' The GMF workshop continues NMIO's cooperation with Italian partners, and was coordinated with the Italian Security and Intelligence Department and Joint Intelligence Center. This GMF workshop sought to discover opportunities to enhance Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) through emerging technologies, in order to improve data acquisition, sharing, and analysis, while also providing strategies and recommendations to improve the Global Maritime Community of Interest (GMCOI)."
