Tuesday, March 13, 2007
Cut Lockheed02 SeaArk Marine, Inc. has delivered three 44-ft. Dauntless Class Patrol/SAR vessels to be operated by the Egyptian Ports and Lighthouses Administration. These vessels are an integrated component of the Gulf of Suez Vessel Traffic Information Management System and are tasked with responsibilities for patrol, surveillance, search and rescue, port security, diving, anti-terrorism and monitoring of vessels transiting the Gulf of Suez, Egypt. These vessels are part of an overall maritime Vessel Traffic Information Management System and Search and Rescue System provided by Lockheed Martin which include land-based radar, communications and computer systems being utilized to manage and monitor vessel traffic in the Gulf of Suez.

These SeaArk 44-ft. Dauntless are constructed of all-welded marine grade aluminum and feature deep-vee variable deadrise hulls that produce smooth, dry and stable rides. These characteristics are greatly appreciated by the crew for fast response and all-weather maneuvering capabilities. Recessed aft cockpits are installed to facilitate the vessels’ mission, aiding in diving, recovery and towing operations and in boarding other vessels. These vessels are powered by twin Caterpillar 3126 inboard diesel engines, each rated @ 450 hp. Additional outfitting includes 12.0 Kw generators. In order to carry out their mission, the vessels have extensive electronics suites for navigation, communication and vessel traffic monitoring as well as firefighting and safety equipment.
