Malaysian Sea Surveillance System (MSSS) Maintenance

Conceived in the late 80's the Malaysian Sea Surveillance System (MSSS) was developed for Malaysian maritime authorities to serve two main purpose; navigation and surveillance. In navigation vessels were required to report in their information (course, speed, identity and destination) to several dedicated control centers along the Malaysia Peninsular. Authorities also advise vessels on incoming vessels (to avoid vessel collision) or hazards (oil spills) within their course path. This allows the vessel to navigate the strait safely with minimal risk.
