Thales helps Jamaïca achieve its ambitions by securing its maritime domain and by preventing any illegal maritime activities. In order to tackle and significantly lower smuggling and other criminal activities in Jamaica, the government is implementing the Maritime Domain Awareness Capability Initiative, a far reaching programme aimed at reducing the proliferation of maritime threats. Jamaica is relying on Thales for the supply of a coastal surveillance system built around the Coast Watcher 100 radar. This system is designed for advanced maritime surveillance, through optimal detection identification and tracking of small, highly maneuverable and fast targets in challenging environments.
This project confirms the strategic partnership established between Thales and the Jamaican government which has already trusted the Group to secure its airspace with Thales Air Traffic Control Centers & Radars as well as ensuring its land security with Bushmaster vehicles.
