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.

Information Minister Ruel Reid made the disclosure during a post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House on Wednesday.

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

Reid also said 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 Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.
