HC-27J APO receives final C-27J Spartan

26th October 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The HC-27J Asset Project Office (APO) has received the US Coast Guard’s (USCG) 14th and final C-27J Spartan surveillance aircraft following regeneration from storage.

The 14 C-27Js have been transferred from the US Air Force, and regenerated under a process involving inspection, verification and repair.

The fleet is now to be missionised with a package that will use Minotaur mission system architecture to incorporate the sensors, radar and C4ISR equipment used to conduct coast guard missions.

The first C-27J was delivered to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, at the end of September to begin the mission system integration process.

Of the coast guard’s other 13 C-27Js, seven are stationed at the HC-27J APO in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Five are used for training curriculum and maintenance procedure development and two are undergoing regularly scheduled long-term maintenance. Six aircraft operate out of Air Station Sacramento, California.

The C-27Js will support the USCG's maritime patrol, drug and migrant interdiction, disaster response and search and rescue operations.
