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