5 What is Coastal Trident?
Coastal Trident is an annual multi-phased training, exercise, and field experimentation program Planned and conducted by CAW Funded through sponsored research partnerships with government and private sector organizations Coastal Trident is conducted to apply the observations, recommendations, and best practices identified during scenario-based response and recovery operations Evaluate current response plans, systems, and TTPs Provide a relevant test venue for field experimentation of developing and transitional technologies

6 What is Coastal Trident?
Coastal Trident was established in 2007 as a strategic partnership between CAW and the commercial Port of Hueneme Satisfy the Port of Hueneme’s annual port security exercise requirement under 33 C.F.R. Improve the capabilities of Port and local public safety partners to respond to an emergency at the Port of Hueneme Coastal Trident was historically organized in an iterative “crawl, walk, run” format Ensure operational readiness amidst personnel turnover Develop robust capabilities to address constantly evolving threats

7 What is Coastal Trident?
2007: EOC training and tabletop exercise Training provided an overview of NIMS and ICS, basic principles of emergency management Tabletop exercise focused on various terrorist threats to the Port 2008: EOC training and command post exercise Training provided an overview of EOC operations, information flow, and documentation Command post exercise focused on a vessel fire and Port evacuation 2009: Policy-level tabletop and full-scale exercises Tabletop exercise focused on policy issues of a public health emergency and non-compliant Port entry Full-scale exercise focused on a vessel and narcotics smuggling 2010: Port security and emergency response seminar Refresher training provided for NIMS, ICS, MARSEC, and Port security regulations Discussion-based exercise on Port threats and vulnerabilities 24 participating agencies 26 participating agencies 40 participating agencies 33 participating agencies

8 What is Coastal Trident?
In 2011, the Coastal Trident program was expanded in scope to include regional objectives and stress field experimentation 2011: Radiological response training and full-scale exercise Courses provided training in EOC action planning and radiological threat response Full-scale exercise focused smuggling of radiological materials and explosives precursors 2012: EOP training and full-scale exercise Training and workshop conducted to validate the Port’s draft EOP Full-scale exercise focused on regional maritime counter-narcotics, humanitarian assistance, and WMD response operations 2013: Senior Leadership tabletop and full-scale exercises Tabletop focused on policy, command, coordination, and resource issues presented by mining of domestic port Full-scale exercise focused on regional maritime counter-IED and mine countermeasures capabilities and response operations 33 participating agencies 54 participating agencies 115 participating agencies

9 Coastal Trident 2014 CT-14 will be conducted to explore the homeland security, homeland defense, emergency response, and emergency management issues associated with the threat of a rogue vessel targeting critical port and maritime infrastructure Sponsored by federal and private sector research funds to study processes, concepts of employment, and technology applications This program represents a collaborative opportunity for federal, state, and local emergency response and management organizations to validate plans, capabilities, and increase proficiency in an operationally relevant scenario CT-14 activities will be a combination of field experimentation, tabletop and full-scale exercise events Modular construct will facilitate control over interaction between program activities Multiple-venue, multi-jurisdictional exercise will permit accomplishment of a variety of strategic and operational objectives
