Between the coast and 200 miles offshore there is a lot of water that requires comprehensive management if a Nation is to obtain the most from its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Fundamental to successful Exclusive Economic Zones management and control is the ability to monitor activity over a vast area and take effective policing action when required.
Air and seaborne sensors, patrol and enforcement assets, own and other Government agencies all form part of the management capability. At the heart of this is a Command and Control function based on an information system capable of operating with the widely disparate authorities likely to be involved in EEZ management. Fishery protection, sea bed mining, oil exploration and the prevention of smuggling, piracy, illegal immigration and money laundering are but a few of the activities that may be embraced by EEZ concerns.
