The China National Space Administration (CNSA) and the Indonesian Maritime Security Coordinating Board (IMSCB) have signed an agreement supporting the latter’s efforts to enhance offshore security.

The CNSA said in a statement on 10 October that the memorandum of understanding (MoU) – signed on 6 October – features the transmission of CNSA remote sensing data to IMSCB ground stations covering the vast Indonesian archipelago.

The data is intended to improve IMSCB early-warning capabilities and support maritime law enforcement and disaster relief response. The MoU follows the signing in 2012 of a China-Indonesia maritime collaboration agreement and the establishment of a bilateral maritime co-operation committee.
