About Us


The Navigation Economic Technologies (NETS) program was established to provide the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with independently verified, objective economic models, tools, and techniques for evaluating current and future navigation needs.

The NETS research program is managed by the U.S. Army Engineer Institute of Water Resources under the direction of Keith Hofseth, Technical oversight of NETS is provided by the Corps Chief Economist, Dr. David Moser and by Dr. Wesley Wilson, University of Oregon. NETS research is coordinated with the Corps Centers of Expertise for Inland Navigation (Wes Walker, Huntington District) and Deep Draft Navigation (Ken Claseman, Mobile District).
