Group students training in Indonesia.

Together with RPS Australia, we provided OILMAP and SARMAP training for the Indonesian Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) and the Indonesian Sea and Coast Guard (KPLP) this month.

Our operations cover approximately 10 per cent of the Earth’s surface, extending into the Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans. Australia contributes substantially to maritime safety across the Indo-Pacific region through direct collaboration with dozens of maritime administrations.

OILMAP and SARMAP are dedicated applications that provide accurate drift modelling support for marine pollution incidents, and search and rescue operations. The training of Basarnas and KPLP staff will increase their capability to manage and coordinate response operations.
