Project Trident

By Jimmy Drennan

Are you interested in shaping the future of international maritime security? CIMSEC will give you that opportunity with Project Trident – a year-long collaboration with influential partners in the maritime community.

Project Trident is featuring seven broad topics, each presented by a partner organization in the form of a call for articles, to address multiple perspectives on maritime security. We want to hear your voices: international, disruptive, and seasoned; from academia, industry, government, and military. Topics will range from Emerging Technologies, to Infrastructure and Trade, and even a Fiction Contest! See our partners and topics below.
