As an Association, one of our core goals is to raise the bar with respect to the quality of services offered within the maritime security domain. To accomplish this, people both inside and outside of the Association must be able to examine the maritime security industry through a critical lens.

To accomplish this, the Association collaborates with academic institutions, think tanks, industry associations, and training academies. These pages are intended to provide a portal for those academic researchers as they work with us on addressing many of the challenges we currently face.
