PAE wins maritime surveillance contract

15th December 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


PAE will deliver command, control, communications, and surveillance capabilities to the Tunisian Navy for maritime surveillance under a contract announced on 12 December.

The equipment will deliver an integrated common operating picture to help the government of Tunisia secure its territorial waters. The contract is part of the US Navy Regional Maritime Awareness Capability (RMAC) programme, which provides host nations with increased maritime domain awareness through improved integration of interagency and international partners.

The project integrates multiple maritime sensors into a common operating picture. The resulting system fully integrates and correlates multiple data sources and displays them to allow for more effective tracking of vessels. With this solution, the Tunisian Navy will be able to more efficiently track and respond to immediate maritime threats or incidents.

Kenneth Myers, president of PAE's national security solutions business unit, said: ‘PAE has over 60 years of supporting the execution of complex and critical missions by providing technical services and national security solutions while exceeding the end user requirements for performance and sustainability.

‘PAE will survey, design, install, and test the capability as well as provide the training and transition to the host nation as part of the contract. This programme will assist a key US ally in securing its border and maintaining peace and stability in the region.’
