Risk Mapping Tools Enhance Port Security

The Risk Management Workspace is a user-friendly way to display and communicate risk information and perform additional analyses that rely on geospatial information.

FACTOR is developing GIS-based risk mapping tools to enhance the United States Coast Guard’s (USCG) Maritime Security Risk Analysis Model (MSRAM) to equip USCG port security managers with advanced mapping, risk visualization, and analysis tools to help inform decision-making. The system, called the Risk Management Workspace (RMW), integrates with existing MSRAM data and supports data enhancement and display. Users can use the RMW to create Asset Areas, Footprints, Containers, Pathways, and other geospatial layers to supplement the MSRAM risk data. This geospatial content produces high resolution profiles of MSRAM targets, which in turn, increases risk comprehension.

Geospatial Analyses

The United States Coast Guard Risk Management Workspace can perform geospatial analyses that includes affected population counts, expected fatalities and injuries from toxic/flammable chemical releases or attacks with explosives, ‘as-the-fish-swims’ determination of likely targets to boat-based attacks, and modeling law enforcement marine-based response times and coverage.

Who We Work With

Working with ABS Consulting, FACTOR built this analysis and visualization tool for the United States Coast Guard.

 

The tools we applied.

SCIPUFF Chemical Plume Dispersion Model

The SCIPUFF (Second-order Closure Integrated Puff) model, developed by Sage Management, is a complex tool to estimate the area exposed to specific concentrations of a released chemical based on a wide range of material and meteorological data.
