Jamaica News: The Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) is to receive a new US$30-million coastal surveillance system to boost its operational capabilities.

This follows Cabinet’s approval of the award of a contract to the France-based Thales Group to supply the ‘Coast Watcher 100’ as one component of the Maritime Domain Awareness Capability initiative of the Government.

Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, made the disclosure during a post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House on Wednesday (February 13).

He informed that payment will begin before the end of 2018/19 and continue over the next two financial years.

In the meantime, Mr. Reid informed that Cabinet has approved the award of a US$1.22-million contract to IMCA Jamaica Limited for the supply and installation of a new standby generator and accessories for the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA).
