China, October 16, 2014: The China National Space Administration (CNSA) and the Indonesian Maritime Security Coordinating Board (IMSCB) have recently signed a MoU supporting the latter's efforts to enhance maritime security.

The CNSA later informed media the MoU would facilitate 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.
