The recorded victories made by the Nigerian military especially the Nigerian Navy against sea pirates and terrorists is not without the positive contribution of the Nigerian Naval personnel.
A great example is the Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO) whose job is beyond studying the physical features of water bodies but also ensuring that naval operations are conducted with precision.
Lack of accurate and up to date knowledge on the routes of naval patrols can seriously affect tactical operations conducted by the Nigerian Navy. This is because of the increase of ship wreckage or debris, and the constant change in the size and depth of water bodies.
The recently acquired hydrographic research vessel, Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) Lana which was delivered to the Nigerian Navy from France has helped the Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO) personnel to conduct hydrographic surveys and produce navigational charts.
The Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO) has been the critical backbone of every successful deployment of naval forces and routine patrol operations by maritime platforms which is used to provide enhanced maritime securities in the Gulf of Guinea.
With the efforts of the Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO), the rate of sea mishaps and accidents experienced by our naval operatives during maritime operations has reduced in the past few months.
The developments of the critical contributions made by the Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO) with the utilization of satellite based remote sensing data for collection of hydrographic information has resulted in the successful interceptions of vessels and arrest of sea criminals.
The efforts of the Nigerian Navy Hydrographic Office (NNHO) needs to be recognized as the unprecedented success recorded by the Nigerian Navy against maritime insecurity can not be achieved with inaccurate navigational charts and poor hydrographic information.
