Exelis has won a $32 million contract to supply airborne surveillance radars to be integrated on U.S. Coast Guard’s HC-130J Super Hercules long-range surveillance aircraft.

The AN/APY-11 multimode radar is designed to support the service's maritime reconnaissance mission, which includes long-range surveillance, search and rescue, drug interdiction, counterterrorism and maritime environmental support. The radar's multifunctionality will augment the U.S. Coast Guard's situational awareness and ability to conduct missions successfully.

"This latest award is indicative of the value and versatility our radar offers the customer," said Pete Martin, director of programs, defense systems, for theExelis electronic attack & release systems business. "As the U.S. Coast Guard's mission continues to evolve, our radar will enhance the reach and effectiveness of the HC-130J and its crews to protect our shores."

First provided to the U.S. Coast Guard under a 2005 contract award, the AN/APY-11 multimode radar is produced by Exelis and partner ELTA Systems Ltd. This is the second contract given recently to Exelis to supply the AN/APY-11 radar to theU.S. Coast Guard. The first for $6.5 million was awarded to the company inOctober 2012.
