Maritime Trade Operations

Based largely around NCAGS (Naval Cooperation and Guidance for Shipping) and AWNIS (Allied Worldwide Navigational Information System) the UK MTO  Organisation exists to enhance the safety of merchant shipping through close cooperation between the military and the shipping industry. NCAGS is the term applied to the measures aimed at protecting maritime trade. AWNIS provides a complete navigational safety information service to military and merchant shipping. MTO is open to both Officers & Ratings. Although not essential, past experience in the RN or Merchant Navy is a distinct advantage.
