Lockheed Martin has won a $72 million contract to support the US Coast Guard's efforts to enforce maritime sovereignty and address at-sea threats through the National Security Cutter (NSC) program.

Through this contract received from Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), Lockheed Martin will provide the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) system for the US Coast Guard's eighth National Security Cutter, the future USCGC Midgett.

"The NSC's C4ISR system integrates data from navigation sensors, communications links and tactical systems to provide an operational picture of its patrol area that enables the US Coast Guard to successfully conduct their many missions," said Ed Segrest, program manager, Communications and Security Technologies, Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training.

"The system provides the underway crew with the most current maritime data and tactical picture for effective decision making and safety in maritime operations." Segrest added.

Lockheed Martin has provided the C4ISR systems to all of the NSCs. The NSC is the multi-mission cutter in the Coast Guard fleet, with capabilities to support the service's homeland security, law enforcement, marine safety, environmental protection and national defense missions.
