Malaysia’s National Applied Research and Development Centre, MIMOS and the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) continued their cooperation through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance the information and communication technology (ICT) capability of the forces.
This collaboration will see the two sides continue to conduct a thorough study on the needs of RMN’s technological solutions.
In a statement today, Navy Chief Admiral Datuk Mohd Reza Mohd Sany said the partnership would enable the RMN to provide a platform for implementing research and development (R&D) for the latest proven technologies
This collaboration will enhance the use of ICT in the Navy to replace the existing system, he said.
He said the RMN hoped that the cooperation would continue in various aspects taking into account the operational needs of the forces such as the Combat Management System.
MIMOS Senior vice-president, Emelia Matrahah said apart from reducing dependence on more expensive foreign technology, the technology developed by MIMOS was able to ensure the safety and sovereignty of the Navy ICT system was always protected.
The previous collaboration was signed on Oct 12, 2015 and subsequently renewed on Oct 30, 2018.
Under the original MoU, several activities were carried out including the provision of technical advisory services for the development of RMN Integrated Monitoring Management System, technology training programmes for RMN personnel and members and the use of the TLDMnet surveillance system developed by MIMOS.
