Ore. group wins $1.6M TSA grant

Transportation Security Administration officials have awarded a $1.62 million contract for development of a prototype security system for ports that could provide the basis for an extensive information-sharing network throughout the Northwest and beyond. TSA officials gave the grant to the Regional Maritime Security Coalition (RMSC), based in Portland, Ore., to create a multiagency Cargo Information Action Center covering 22 ports on the Columbia/Snake River System stretching from Astoria, Ore., on the Pacific coast, to Lewiston, Idaho.
