Columbia, S.C., March 24, 2015 – The Mariner Group recently completed an extensive CommandBridge integration as the core situational awareness platform for the Puget Sound’s Maritime Common Operating Picture (MCOP).

The MCOP unites the Port of Seattle, Port of Tacoma, Seattle Police Department, Seattle Fire Department and multiple other users with a single operational picture. CommandBridge allows Puget Sound MCOP stakeholders to collect data, and securely share this information to rapidly assess threats and execute a decisive, collaborative response.

Installing CommandBridge enables each individual agency to better manage their respective daily operations, while also improving multi-agency collaboration during emergencies or region-wide events. The ability to share the right information with the right people increases situational awareness across the entire Puget Sound region, which effectively decreases the response time to ongoing events.

The MCOP is also being supported by Mariner’s Portfolio application—an operations management system designed to bring the very best situational awareness to everyday operations. The system keeps users up-to-date via the Streams feature, which captures information on events that drive security and operations, then feeds that data to the people and organizations that need it. Portfolio also provides a Panels tool, which features current status updates on critical assets to ensure those assets’ availability when needed most.
