Raytheon has secured a $25 million contract for the second phase of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency‘s maritime border security program in collaboration with the Philippines’ coast guard.
The company said Tuesday it will provide training and sustainment services as well as command-and-control, sensing and communications systems under the increment 2 contract.
“This work continues our strong partnership with the Philippines and our direct support of DTRA’s efforts to help nations secure their borders and coastlines,” said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services unit.
According to Raytheon, the DTRA contract works to help Philippine forces build up maritime border security capabilities, including training centers, electro-optical infrared cameras and communications and surveillance upgrades.
The contract covers the transition of functions to the Philippines’ government and development of a common operating picture platform across the National Coast Watch Control and National Coast Watch Stations, the company added.
Raytheon previously completed the first increment, during which the company provided technology and services to open the NCWC in the Philippines.
