SeaAway may build its world headquarters near the Sea Ray Boats campus on Merritt Island, Fla., and create 100 new jobs to help fight terrorism on the ocean.

The maritime security company proposes to spend $60 million on construction and $12 million for equipment, Florida Today reports. The move would add three buildings and expand two others at a Sea Ray facility near the Banana River.

Construction could start in May, the newspaper reports.
