The Arctic IAT has developed an inventory of Federally-owned and operated communications systems at use in the U.S. Arctic
A new report, An Economic Analysis of Spending on Marine Transportation System (MTS) Infrastructure (April 2020) conducted by Inforum at the University of Maryland for the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS), demonstrates that increasing investment in marine transportation system (MTS) infrastructure above a business-as-usual scenario will improve U.S. economic performance. Specifically, we can expect additional MTS investment to deliver higher levels of GDP, more jobs, increased incomes, improved trade performance, and higher productivity.
The U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) has completed its biennial update of the “Federal Funding Handbook for Marine Transportation System Infrastructure,” one of the most downloaded items on the CMTS website. This is the fourth iteration of the Handbook since it was first produced in 2013.
On Friday, May 17, the CMTS and Wilson Center Polar Institute held a moderated panel discussion on Infrastructure in the Arctic, centered around the Infrastructure Week theme of "Building for Tomorrow." We were joined by a distinguished set of panelists including
The U.S. Arctic's extreme operating environment poses unique challenges to land and coastal-based infrastructure development. Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) and the Wilson Center Polar Institute for a conversation on these challenges and how they affect projections of future maritime traffic, existing development activities, and the emerging vision of the Alaska of tomorrow.
The CMTS Industry Outreach Workshop was held on Monday, June 11 at the U.S. Department of Transportation and was attended by nearly 70 marine transportation system (MTS) stakeholders and partners. Eleven Federal partners shared their vision of maritime infrastructure from Administration priorities to ongoing Agency actions.
Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) and its Marine Transportation System (MTS) Federal partners as they share their vision on maritime infrastructure. Infrastructure in this context addresses not only physical infrastructure, but also informational infrastructure (such as aids to navigation, nautical charts, and real-time meteorological and oceanographic services) and mariner needs.
Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) during National Infrastructure Week 2018 for a discussion on port infrastructure resilience and lessons learned from the dramatic 2017 hurricane season. This discussion provides the opportunity to learn from Federal MTS agencies and stakeholders, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Infrastructure Protection, and the American Association of Port Authorities.
