Cubic to Work on Port Security in Panama

Cubic Applications Inc. has received a nine-month contract from the Organization of American States (OAS) to provide seaport security assessments and training for six ports in Panama.

It includes the Port of Balboa, located at the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal, and the Port of Cristobal, Port of Cristobal Cruise Terminal, Manzanillo Container Terminal, Colon Container Terminal, and Colon Cruise Terminal, all located on the Caribbean side of Panama. “By conducting seaport security training for Panama, the OAS and Cubic are providing an invaluable service to the maritime industry worldwide, since so much of the world’s cargo goes through the Panama Canal,” said Peter Miller, director of maritime security programs for Cubic.

Voice Your Opinion


We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
