The aircraft, CGNR 2013, will now be equipped with the Minotaur mission system suite by L3 Technologies’ Integrated Systems Platform Integration Division, along with coast guard-specific sensors, integrated radar and communication systems, following which the aircraft will be redesignated as an HC-130J.
