It comes back to the point the Deputy made. We have to update our equipment whenever necessary.

The maritime surveillance is a very similar project. We participate in the European Defence Agency, EDA. I spoke last week about EDA projects and the committee and the Dáil cleared them. I am sure the Deputy is aware that we are participating in Operation Sophia. The maritime surveillance, and the project mentioned there, will assist in Operation Sophia and the work we do there.
