Maritime Expeditionary & Transit Security – Technology Demonstration

Maritime Expeditionary and Transit Security Seal


To improve Maritime Expeditionary and Transit Security, the Navy must integrate new capability sets and dynamic scenarios.  The Physical Security Enterprise & Analysis Group (PSEAG) has sponsored this initiative, which is overseen by the Navy PSEAG representative in the Office of the Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy for Policy (ODUSN-P).


ARA’s Navy PSEAG support team provides program support, project development, and project execution to the Navy PSEAG representative.  Our force protection subject matter experts can adapt various models for the integration of new technologies with existing security systems at any level from the simple to the complex, with any type of military security demonstration or exercise.

Concept Demonstration Design Expertise
We have expertise in completing the “end to end” design, development, execution and documentation of complex security-related technology demonstrations integrated with any size military exercise to demonstrate the value of emerging technologies and the operational effectiveness of integrating forces at both the systems level and organizational level. 

METS leverages the information and lessons learned from the Integrated Waterside Security – Concept Demonstration (IWS-CD), which merged an existing waterfront tactical force protection exercise called CITADEL PROTECT with the introduction of new capability sets and dynamic scenarios.  We provided the subject matter expertise (SME) for the design, development and execution of this complex security initiative.  Support included the successful incorporation of ten new technologies ranging from non-lethal weapons, shipboard access systems, explosive trace detection systems, point defense missile system to next generation port security barriers (PSBs). 


Protecting naval assets ensures that those assets are available to support the Navy’s mission of winning wars, deterring aggression, and maintaining freedom of the seas.
