Northrop Grumman has received production and long lead time materials (LLTM) contracts from Eastern Shipbuilding Group for C4ISR and control systems for the US Coast Guard’s Offshore Patrol Cutters (OPC), the company announced on 4 February.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will produce C4ISR and control systems for the first OPC, USCGC Argus, and procure LLTM for these systems on the second OPC, USCGC Chase.

As part of the OPC programme, Northrop Grumman is responsible for the integrated bridge, navigation, C2, computing network, data distribution, machinery control and propulsion control systems.

The coast guard exercised ESG’s option to produce the Argus and procure LLTM for the Chase in September.
