Raytheon announced Monday that its designed National Coast Watch Center(NCWC) has been opened for maritime security in Philippines.

Raytheon also implemented and equipped the center and its coastal system with its integrated border security solutions. Further, NCWC aims to improve the country's ability to detect, prevent and deter threats and security risks in its territorial waters.

The coastal watch system project is part of Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract II awarded in April 2011, supported by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency to the Philippines Maritime Agencies.

Raytheon also provided communication and surveillance solutions for the Palawan and Cebu islands with associated training and sustainment for the Filipino operators. Dave Wajsgras president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services said, “The centre's opening represents our commitment to providing critical services and solutions to help countries mitigate the risk of illicit weapons and materials crossing their sovereign borders.
