Since Sept. 11, 2001, much of the national focus on ports’ preparedness has been on preventing potential acts of terror and the multitude of active hurricane seasons. The COVID-19 pandemic renewed focus on how to protect ports from a diversity of threats, including natural disasters and infectious disease outbreaks. Our airport and maritime port infrastructures are an intricate system supported by waterway, road, and rail systems to create a network of inland and coastal ports. Any disruption of this system will have cascading impacts to the local, regional, national, and possibly international economy as well as a multitude of sectors, critical infrastructure, and community lifelines.

Port Vulnerabilities and Cascading Impacts
Today, U.S. maritime ports & waterways
handle more than 2 billion tons of
domestic import/export cargo
The market economy for airport and maritime ports is expected to exceed $110 billion in the coming decade.
U.S. airports handle more than
1 billion passengers & 22.5 million tons
of domestic freight annually.
Although the core functionality of a port
is to transport passengers and goods,
ports also serve as a primary source
of revenue and jobs for a community.
Designed by our team of leading emergency managers and software technicians, the Odysseus™ Enterprise System provides a comprehensive platform and suite of tools that are specifically designed to assist ports in achieving and sustaining regulatory and industry standards as well as a comprehensive framework to prepare, respond, recovery and mitigate for future threats.
