$700,000 for Transportation Mobility and Security Center

The specter of transportation systems being used for terrorist attacks has become chillingly real since September 11, 2001. Intermodal freight systems, with their numerous transitions (ship to truck to train, etc.) and use of unsecured bridges and other infrastructure elements in dense population areas, are especially vulnerable to such threats.

To develop new methods and technologies to reduce these risks, Democratic Congressional Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland obtained funding in the federal Omnibus Appropriations Act, passed by Congress on November 20, for a Center for Intermodal Freight Transportation Mobility and Security. The Center will be a collaboration between the A. James Clark School of Engineering and Rensselear Polytechnic Institute.
