The goal of the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO) is to build partnerships and engage the Global Maritime Community of Interest (GMCOI)—the U.S. Intelligence Community and non-Intelligence Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments; academia; maritime commercial, defense, and science and technology industries; nonprofit and research institutes; and foreign partners—to understand the implications of emerging technologies that have the ability to produce new threats or challenges in the maritime domain or that offer new opportunities to improve maritime security.

Through building partnerships and identifying new technologies, NMIO improves the ability to address current and emerging security challenges associated with technological advancements. NMIO’s efforts also bring together partners from across the science and technology enterprise, enabling and catalyzing integration across the GMCOI.

Research Efforts

NMIO is proud to work on research ventures with many partners throughout the GMCOI. Supporting such efforts enables NMIO to remain at the cusp of emerging technology and diligently deliver on its priorities to effectively build partnerships and identify new technologies. Furthermore, NMIO is able to address current and emerging security challenges associated with these technological advancements.
