A new National Coast Watch Center (NCWC) for maritime security has opened in the Republic of the Philippines.
Raytheon Company designed, implemented and equipped the center and its coastal system using the company's integrated border security solutions.
The NCWC is the hub of the Philippines' National Coast Watch System for maritime security. The system improves the ability of the country's maritime forces to detect, prevent and deter threats and security risks across its territorial waters.
The Raytheon team also provided communication and surveillance solutions for the islands of Palawan and Cebu with associated training and sustainment for the Filipino operators.
The coastal watch system project is part of the Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (CTRIC II), awarded in April 2011, as a multiple award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
