The maritime defence pillar in support of the global vision of the Maritime Axis is an indispensable foundation for Indonesia as it is exposed to the dynamics of international development, regional and national strategic environment, and the threats to the environment. This study will analyze the defence strategy against the current state of the APTS, analyse the current conditions and formulate the best defence strategy. Furthermore, the research used is a descriptive qualitative phenomenology. Défense Policy Implementation Theory states that policy implementation can be adequately achieved, influenced by inclusive, interactive, transparent, controllable, and affordable (IITCA). The results showed that the performance of the APTS used is currently very limited due to sedimentation, which affects the channel width and depth. Another inhibiting factor is the presence of illegal residents' structures along the channel. In addition, the existence of the Suramadu Bridge also becomes a barrier for large ships through the channel. The APTS is not a priority for the standardization of authorized companies because it takes economic factors into account. It is crucial for the existence of the 2nd Indonesian Armada Base in Surabaya. The Indonesian Navy's most prominent armed force is on this base. The Surabaya West Shipping Channel (APBS) is very busy, and therefore, the Indonesian Navy ships encountered some challenges entering and leaving the ground. APTS in its current condition can only be bypassed by small boats, with a maximum of 2,000 tons. In conclusion, the lack of optimal implementation of the defence strategy is associated with the presence of APTS is not ideal. Therefore, the system formulated is that the Indonesian Ministry of Defence is striving for the President to issue policy discretion to prioritize the normalization of APTS by using existing national resources.
