Lockheed Martin wins US Coast Guard C4ISR contract

29th May 2014 - 15:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin will provide the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) system for the US Coast Guard’s new National Security Cutter (NSC) under a new $69 million contract announced on 28 May.

The C4ISR system will be integrated into the coast guard’s seventh NCS, the future USCGC Kimball. The system will bring crews comprehensive, real-time situational awareness, commonality and interoperability, and enable a greater collection and sharing of maritime data. It allows the crew to see vessels in distress or targets of interest; collaborate with other coast guard air, sea and land assets; and act on the most current information available.

Joe Buss, program director of Lockheed Martin's Coast Guard and Mission Control Systems, said: ‘The NSC's C4ISR system is critical to ensuring the USCG can support the nation's maritime strategy. Our brave men and women of the coast guard rely on the accuracy and timeliness of the data our system provides to achieve their many missions and maritime operations.’

Lockheed Martin has provided the C4ISR systems to all six of the NSCs. The NSC - the largest and most technologically advanced multi-mission cutter in the coast guard fleet – is designed to support the coast guard’s homeland security, law enforcement, marine safety, environmental protection and national defence missions.
