The Radar Surveillance System (RSS) at Christmas Island was initially established as a trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a land based maritime radar in detecting relatively small boats across a range of weather conditions and sea states. The intended purpose of the RSS was to provide Border Protection Command (BPC), a division of ACBPS, with an increased level of maritime domain awareness of approaches to the island. The trial was conducted by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) with support from ACBPS.

As the trial progressed the capabilities of the RSS were enhanced to the point that it became an effective surveillance system and is now regarded as an essential border protection capability. Along with the increased capability, the supporting infrastructure on Christmas Island has been progressively made more robust and permanent.

As the RSS has become an operational capability with a requirement for high availability the responsibility for in-service support has transitioned from DSTO to ACBPS. ACBPS have now contracted the In-Service support of the Radar Surveillance System to Daronmont Technologies.

The Radar Surveillance System was also deployed on Cocos (Keeling) Islands late 2014. Since the radar became operational, Daronmont Technologies have also been contracted to undertake the In-Service support of this radar.
