Lockheed Martin on Wednesday announced a $69 million contract with the U.S. Coast Guard for a command-and-control system on a National Security Cutter vessel.
Lockheed Martin’s C4ISR system will enable the Coast Guard cutter, to be named the Kimball, to address situations encountered at sea. The Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance system will allow the Kimball’s crew to see distressed ships or targets, as well as collaborate with other Coast Guard crews and act on real-time information.
"The NSC's C4ISR system is critical to ensuring the USCG can support the nation's maritime strategy," Joe Buss, program director of Lockheed Martin's Coast Guard and Mission Control Systems, said in a statement. "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."
The contract was received from Huntington Ingalls Industries of Newport News, Va.
Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems unit has a facility in Moorestown, and the company is headquartered in Bethesda, Md.
