Security Research Plan

<div style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt"><font size="2">Following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the AASHTO Standing Committee on Research (SCOR) dedicated a significant portion of NCHRP funding to support accelerated research into highway transportation security and emergency response issues. These funds have largely been programmed through NCHRP Project 20-59, Surface Transportation Security Research, and have resulted in numerous valuable research products (available on the TRB website at </font><a href=""><font color="#800080" size="2"></font></a><font size="2">). </font></span><span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt"><font size="2">Five years later, it is time to assess these products to (1) determine gaps in the existing research and (2) identify a three-year program of projects to address the research gaps identified. The results of this research are intended to provide guidance to SCOR, the NCHRP 20-59 panel, and relevant AASHTO committees in identifying a prioritized program of research supportive of the six goals for transportation security (see the slides at </font><a href=""><font color="#800080" size="2"></font></a><font size="2">) identified by the AASHTO Special Committee on Transportation Security's (SCOTS) research subcommittee. </font></span><span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt"><font size="2">All modes under state DOT control or influence should be addressed. In addition to the products discussed above, the panel recommends looking at modally-focused research needs assessments conducted by others (e.g., AAR; AAPA; FHWA's Multiyear Plan for Bridge and Tunnel Security Research, Development, and Deployment); security research plans of individual state DOTs; and security research needed for state DOTs that may not be readily apparent (e.g., motor vehicle registry, access to multimodal hubs).</font></span></div><div style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><font size="2"> </font></div>
