Military, government, industry and academic leaders converged on the Naval Postgraduate School Sept. 9-11 for the first annual Cooperative Operations and Applied Science and Technology Studies (COASTS) Science and Technology Symposium, focused on bringing the latest software and technology solutions to first responders, law enforcement and the services. A highlight of the conference was the keynote by retired Air Force Gen. Charles Holland, former commander, Headquarters, U.S. Special Operations Command (photo), on the importance of shared situational awareness and interoperability for multinational operations in the Global War on Terrorism and of programs like COASTS for quickly improving these mission critical capabilities. “The future is about joint, combined, interagency, coalition and commercial all working together. [COASTS Program Director] Jim Ehlert is bringing the coalition partners together, and this is exactly what we need,” Holland said. (Released)
