According to the China's State Oceanic Administration, the Huangyan Island, the Diaoyu Islands and the Xisha Islands have been included into national waters dynamic monitoring and surveillance system. This is a great process since coastal monitoring and surveillance have been made regularly.
The national waters dynamic monitoring and surveillance system is a network designed to protect China's maritime rights and oceanic security. With the help of satellite remote sensing, aerial remote sensing, field monitoring and remote video monitoring, the system could provide dynamic 3-D monitoring to the government and oceanic administration for decision making.
Recently, satellite remote sensing images of the Huangyan Island, the Diaoyu Islands and the Xisha Islands have been processed and stored in national waters dynamic monitoring and surveillance system. These images with a resolution of 50 centimeters cover an area over 500 square kilometers. The system covering such a wide span now has already become an ocean management system with a connection with public administration.
State Oceanic Administration says that the system is strengthened to remote sensing monitoring of open sea in the next step.
In the meantime, 11 Unmanned aerial vehicle bases will be built in 11 coastal provinces and regions to monitor the country's vast water territory as unmanned aerial vehicles can fly in set routes, recording and sending back timely data with multi-frequency and high-accuracy.
