L-3 Communications has received a nine-year, $160 million contract from Bollinger Shipyards to provide an integrated C4ISR system for the US Coast Guard’s (USCG) 26 Sentinel-class Fast Response Cutters (FRCs), the company announced on 25 July.

Under the contract L-3 will provide initial design upgrades to the FRC, including exterior communications, antenna arrangement and analysis, and other situational awareness enhancements. Interior and exterior communications systems, integrated bridge, and distributed navigation equipment will also be delivered, installed and supported.

The company will also provide training to FRC crew and provide post-delivery warranty support at each cutter’s homeport. 

The Sentinel-class FRC is capable conducting missions including port, waterways and coastal security; search and rescue; fishery patrols; and national defence. The vessels can accommodate 22 crew members, endure five or more days at sea, and feature short-range prosecutor rigid-hull inflatable boats for rescue and interception.
