WASHINGTON (BNS): Lockheed Martin received a $66 million contract to provide the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) system for the United States Coast Guard’s fourth National Security Cutter (NSC).

Lockheed Martin’s C4ISR system will provide the 418-foot NSC 4 with comprehensive, real-time situational awareness, commonality and interoperability with other government agencies and organisations.

"The NSC C4ISR system gives the Coast Guard greater capability to conduct its many missions. The system’s command and control capability enhances the Coast Guard’s ability to coordinate relief efforts after hurricanes and other natural disasters," Dan Schultz, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Ship and Aviation Systems, was quoted as saying in a company news release.

Lockheed Martin developed and provided the C4ISR system for the first three cutters – the USCGC Bertholf and USCGC Waesche, currently in service, and the recently christened Stratton, scheduled for delivery later this year.

In addition to providing the NSC systems, Lockheed Martin also provided the C4ISR missionisation for the Coast Guard’s HC-130J and HC-144A aircraft.
