Cobham Receives AUD$ 7 million Additional Contract Extension from Australian CBP Service

Cobham has received a one year supplementary contract extension from the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service to provide maritime surveillance services using two F406 twin turboprop fixed-wing aircraft through June 2014. The aircraft are fitted with a surveillance radar and satellite communications, providing 2,000 hours of maritime surveillance per year. In addition, Cobham provides 15,000 hours of annual cover using ten Dash 8 aircraft under a separate contract that runs through to 2021.

The Australian Border Protection operation is the largest civil surveillance operation in the world, which Cobham has successfully supported since 1995.

Commenting on the contract, vice president of Cobham Aviation Services Mr. Peter Nottage said: “This contract extension further strengthens our relationship with the Australian Government for the largest civil maritime surveillance operation in the world, reflecting the technology and know-how we have been bringing to this partnership for almost two decades.”
