Abstract

Malaysia, as a maritime nation is mostly surrounded by sea. Maintaining the country’s security and safety of shipping is vital for the interest of this maritime nation. In this regards ship detection and surveillance system will increasingly be required to play a major role. One of the potential threats to shipping is the act of piracy and armed robbery at sea. With the current chaotic world political condition throughout the globe, there is a new threat of terrorism which has the potential to destroy the very fabric of society. At sea, terrorism has the added dimension of vastness of the area of operation which is almost impossible to be patrolled effectively. At present, surveillance is carried out by expensive and manpower-extensive patrols. Radar, aerial and optical surveillance are also used with all their respective limitations.
