Our worldwide mobility based economy is being impacted (as much as 6% of GDP annually) due to insecure transportation systems. Security effectiveness measures vary widely, depending on the mode of transportation, ranging from “medium effectiveness” for airports, to “low effectiveness” for maritime, rail, transit, and intermodal activities. Regardless of the transport mode, improvements are essential to address security planning, response, and national preparedness. Transportation Security
