About Coastal Trident
In the summer of 2020, GT2’s Center for Threat Management will
conduct the thirteenth-annual Coastal Trident Port and Maritime
Coastal Trident 2020 will be comprised of scenario-based
training, field experimentation, and exercise activities and
present participants with unique opportunities to examine
operational and technical capabilities in port and maritime
Coastal Trident is an operational research program conducted
annually to advance the state of the art in addressing threats to
port and maritime security. The program is conducted in
partnership with sponsors and stakeholders in military,
homeland defense, homeland security, and emergency response.
Coastal Trident is widely recognized as the largest sustained port
and maritime security program in the nation and regularly
involves the participation of more than 150 federal, state, local
government, and private sector organizations.
Coastal Trident 2020
Coastal Trident 2020 will be conducted to examine the
operational and technical capabilities of stakeholders in port and
maritime security to address asymmetric threats to commerce,
critical infrastructure, and national security.
This year’s program will feature alignment with several
established technology and exercise initiatives, maximizing the
resources available to support program activities while limiting
regional “exercise fatigue” and the planning burden shouldered
by participating organizations
These aligned initiatives include:
Naval Surface Warfare Center-Port Hueneme’s Advanced
Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX), which will focus on
leading edge concepts for future in-service engineering and
distance support to U.S. and Allied surface combatants.
Exercise and experimentation priorities by local law
enforcement and emergency response organizations
(unmanned systems employment and countermeasures,
maritime communications and data links, shipboard tactical
operations and maritime hazardous materials response).
ANTX Coastal Trident Technology Open House, which will focus on increasing awareness and access to port and maritime
security technologies, showcase field experimentation
projects, and synchronize efforts to implement technical
solutions to operational gaps.

ANTX Coastal Trident Technology Open House
The ANTX Coastal Trident Technology Open House will be conducted as a series of technical displays, demonstrations, speakers, breakout discussions, and open format networking opportunities. The event will be designed to highlight the capabilities of the FATHOMWERX as an enabler of technical research, prototyping, experimentation, and commercialization activities that support the naval warfighter and Navy initiatives to transition technologies to civil authorities.

Coastal Trident 2020 Workshop
A series of technical demonstrations and roundtable discussions will be conducted in order to evaluate novel applications and CONEMP for port and maritime security technologies.
These demonstrations are intended to serve as gateways to participation in Coastal Trident field experimentation and exercise activities, increasing awareness and access to technologies capable of meeting operational needs as critical enablers and force multipliers. Operational and technical subject matter experts in port and maritime security capabilities will provide insight into development and acquisition priorities, potential use cases and stakeholders, and barriers to implementation.
Workshop 1 - June 18, 2020
Workshop 2 - October 8, 2020
