eGlobalTech contracted to support U.S. Coast Guard C4ISR
Arlington, Va. (UPI) Jan 26, 2016 - The U.S. Coast Guard has contracted eGlobalTech to provide communication and intelligence systems engineering support.

Under the three-year contract, eGlobalTech will support the Coast Guard's Command, Control, Communication Computers Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, or C4ISR, capabilities. The company says its services will focus on the Coast Guard's project management, financial management, business operations and other areas.

eGlobalTech is a consulting and IT solutions firm that supports several U.S. government customers, including the Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Labor, Energy, and State departments.

Kuwait has awarded Abu Dhabi Ship Building a $70.7 million contract to build eight patrol boats as the country moves to boost its maritime defense capabilities.

The order includes landing crafts and high-speed protection vessels. Khaleej Times reports the vessels will be used to protect Kuwait's territorial waters and maritime facilities.

"The vessels will have high-level requirements, making them globally competitive protection vessels, which will be built by using state-of-the-art multipurpose technologies and equipment," Kuwait's defense ministry said.

The National reports deliveries of the ships are expected to begin in under two years. ADSB CEO Khaled Al Mazrouei says his company's contract with the government of Kuwait demonstrates its commitment to growing regional capabilities.

"We are proud to be supplying vessels to the Kuwait Ministry of Defense and are grateful for the confidence that the State of Kuwait has given to us by awarding this contract," Mazrouei said.

CACI continues U.S. Fleet Forces Command support
Arlington, Va. (UPI) Jan 26, 2016 - CACI International has received a $35 million task order to provide technical analysis and lifecycle management support the U.S. Fleet Forces Command.
