Thales has been selected by the Jamaican Defense Force to provide a coastal surveillance system based around its Coast Watcher 100 radar, the company announced on 8 April.

The Jamaican Defence Force is acquiring several Coast Watcher 100 coastal surveillance radars, electro-optical sensors, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System radios and a National Control Center in order to counter illegal activities in Jamaican waters.

The Coast Watcher 100 is long-range coastal surveillance radar for unmanned 24/7 operations. The system is designed for advanced maritime surveillance and is able to detect, identify and track small, highly manoeuvrable and fast air and surface targets.
