Underwater inspection for US coast guard

Coda Octopus : 12 November, 2007  (Application Story)
Coda Octopus delivers underwater inspection systems as part of US coast guard order
Coda Octopus Group has recently delivered the first of three Underwater Inspection Systems (UIS) to the US Coast Guard, in accordance with the contract signed with the Department of Defence Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) in July 2007.

A TSWG Program Manager commented that, "Following a very successful initial design review meeting with Coda Octopus in Tampa in early October, the US Coast Guard have taken delivery of the first of the three UIS systems for evaluation, which we expect to play an important part in their ongoing underwater security operations. We are delighted with the progress of the contract thus far."

The contract between the Company and TSWG was signed in July 2007. It has an immediate value of $2.59m and requires the delivery of three UIS systems over the first six months, to enable rapid underwater searches in the nation's ports and waterways by the US Coast Guard and other users. The contract includes additional options which, if fully funded, would expand the contract to a total of $8.27m and would require the Company to deliver a further seven UIS systems and develop a number of significant enhancements to the current system.

The Company confirmed that the second system is scheduled for delivery to the US Coast Guard in mid December, 2007.
