In the Decade of the 80 's this task increased again due to the Declaration of the exclusive economic zone (ZEE) on 25th April 1980 based on the ' new map Boundary Waters and continental shelf 1979 '. The Declaration has brought implications expand kawasasan waters that must be monitored by the Royal Malaysian Navy.

This claim can be settled either by negotiation or violence. Notwithstanding that the Royal Malaysian Navy will play an important role helping to resolve the problems, as well as to enforce the law in an area claimed.

Although malaysia is a maritime country but has yet to present a National Maritime policies to reconcile the various maritime activities, such as the movement of all national resources traded through the sea, and exploitation of the resources of the maritime surnber (both are considered as a user), as well as for asset sernua MOBILIS ation was commissioned to enforce maritime law (classified as task force).

Economic development and determine the performance kekukuhannya is a national interest (national interest).Any activity that could threaten the strength of the economy can be regarded as betray national interests and actions must be taken to prevent it vociferously. The importance of maritime defence and strategy of economic ekploitasi cannot be underestimated.

As a first step to meet the needs of the Royal Malaysian Navy has a number of ships that operate in the maritime and also specify waters (especially the route in and out of the port) is free from the threat of region. They are the Government and the ship's logistics providers (MultiPurpose Command and Supply Ship-MPCSS), Korvet, Naval patrol vessel (Offshore Patrol Vessel-OPV) and Broom Twists (Mine Counter Present Vessel - MCMV).
