Deal signed to boost nation’s coastal safety

The Government of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, through the National Maritime Coordination Centre (NMCC), Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), secured a contract agreement with General Dynamics Mission System Canada for the delivery of the Sultanate’s first National Coastal Surveillance System (NCSS) – a coastal maritime network surveillance system overlooking the entire Brunei’s coastline, Brunei Bay and Brunei River.

The core delivery of NCSS will allow real time monitoring activities in Brunei’s coastal maritime area. This is made possible with the installation of several sensor sites collecting data and information thus creating a maritime picture to support operational or strategic decision making and response.
