The Vietnam Coast Guard operates three MSS 6000 maritime surveillance systems coordinated from one Mission Command Centre.

The MSS 6000 systems have been installed on three new CASA C 212-400 aircraft. Installation and test of the systems in the aircraft, setting up of a ground station and a mission command centre, as well as operational and technical training of the customer’s personnel was all included in the contract.

The mission command centre is a brand-new feature in the MSS 6000 concept.

The systems are used for patrolling the Vietnam seas, to detect and suppress oil spills and illegal fishing activities, to protect the economic zone and to take part in search and rescue operations.

The Vietnam Coast Guard was founded in 1998 and we have been in contact with them since the start.” says Mr. Olov Fäst, Director Global Sales of ST Airborne Systems. “We are very proud to get the opportunity to provide them with a powerful tool to enhance their surveillance capabilities.”
