The article discusses how naval forces can adopt some of the civilian technologies used for handling shipping traffic (called "vessel traffic services") to provide better and more efficient security for merchant shipping ("maritime security operations"). Threats to merchant shipping discussed include collisions, piracy, and terrorist attacks. The concept of naval vessel traffic services is then discussed, using examples such as the International Recognized Transit Corridor developed in the Gulf of Aden.
