Maritime Authority to use satellite tech to track vessels

Providing a more effective system for maritime safety, it aims at save lives at sea utilizing terrestrial and satellite technology and a ship board radio system.

This will improve communications between vessels and NMSA’s central search and rescue operations centre located here in Port Moresby.

This will help improve PNG’s compliance with International Maritime Organization standards and its new capabilities will make sure to enhance the safety of seafarers operating throughout PNG waters.
