Description

Protecting our nation's ports from terrorist attacks consumes significant resources. To help address this problem, researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have been developing technologies to make offshore inspection of seaborn trade using floating ports a realistic option. The March 25 webinar will take a look how container commerce can be reinvented through public/private partnerships around Lawrence Livermore technologies and capabilities.
