Cobham Receives 2-year, GBP 105M Contract Extension for Aerial Maritime Surveillance from Australian CBP Service

Cobham has reached agreement with the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service to extend the existing Sentinel aerial maritime surveillance contract by 2 years. This £105M contract extension secures the contract until the end of 2021.

Cobham CEO Bob Murphy commented: “We’re very proud of the civil maritime surveillance service we provide in Australia and the positive relationship we have with the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service. This two year agreement extends our operation till 2021 and further underpins our business operations in this strategically important country, where we also provide contracted airline services for Qantas and fly in fly out services for numerous resource industry clients.”
