The Australian Maritime Security Operations Centre (AMSOC)

The AMSOC coordinates the planning and delivery of current operational activity for all Customs and Border Protection assets assigned to Border Protection Command. This includes deploying aerial surveillance and surface response assets, in collaboration with HQJTF639, to respond to maritime security threats.



To facilitate its operations and cross management between agencies, the AMSOC has embedded liaison officers from the Australian Fisheries Management Authority, Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, Customs National Operations Centre and, on occasion, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

Located in Canberra within Border Protection Command Headquarters, the AMSOC is the primary focus for Border Protection Command operations when incidents arise. modified: 29 July, 2011 3:25 PM
