The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has awarded a one-year contract worth $4.6 million to Leonardo to support its C-27J Spartan medium range surveillance aircraft, the USCG announced at the beginning of May.

If all three option years are exercised, the value of the contract could reach $16.1 million.

Under the contract, Leonardo will provide technical and logistics support to improve the C-27J's availability for operations. The HC-27J Asset Project Office in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and Air Station Sacramento, California, will receive access to a field service representative and factory service representative who will provide on-site technical expertise.

The coast guard will also receive access to technical data and programme logistics support at the Leonardo logistics facility in Pomigliano d'Arco, Italy, to help with delivery of parts.
