The Indonesian Navy plans to set up a Traffic Management Center (TMC) to monitor sea traffic in a bid to offer safety and security by providing traffic on sea lanes' information, Antara news reported Wednesday.
The Indonesian Navy plans to have a TMC similar to the one belonging to the Indonesian Police for monitoring road traffic, Indonesian Navy spokesperson Vice Admiral Manahan Simorangkir was quoted as saying by the agency.
"We want to serve the community by offering safety and security, including for the international community," he affirmed, adding that Malaka and Sunda Straits are sea lanes where the traffic is very busy.
Both sea lanes have areas prone to piracy and accidents due to navigation problems, and therefore, a facility such as TMC is very important, Simorangkir pointed out.
According to the spokesperson, the Indonesian Navy is currently developing the existing media center for the Indonesia Eastern Command Fleet and other institutions, so that all parties can be integrated, and every situation pertaining to sea traffic can be monitored.
