The Marine Security Operations Centres (MSOC) were created to provide effective maritime security by collocating departments and agencies with a security and/or safety mandate. The Marine Security Operations Centres are located in Victoria, Niagara on the Lake and Halifax. The partner agencies are the Department of National Defence, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canada Border Services Agency, Transport Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Conservation & Protection). Together, these departments and agencies use their respective sensor and system data to create the national maritime picture and their collaboration supports timely operational decision making. For its part, the Canadian Coast Guard monitors activities in Canadian waters 24/7/365 in each of the MSOCs using radar, Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT), the Automatic Identification System (AIS), and the Information System on Marine Navigation (INNAV). Coast Guard personnel also provide maritime expertise to help interpret and assess on-water activities to detect threats.
