NEW YORK, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Equatorial Guinea defense authorities selected L-3 Communications to support the country's maritime security with a coastal surveillance program.
U.S. company L-3 says its MPRI division was awarded the contract. Under the $58 million task order, L-3 will develop a Maritime Security Enhancement Program that will provide nationwide coastal surveillance across Equatorial Guinea.
The MSEP is part of an effort to establish a surveillance site network for Equatorial Guinea that will strengthen the country's maritime security capabilities over several years.
"This important contract award represents a strategic opportunity to contribute not only to the vital maritime security of Equatorial Guinea, but also provides a thoughtful approach toward establishing long-term stability for the entire region," Jim Jackson, MPRI International Group general manager, said in a statement.
