LockMart Completes C4ISR Mission System Delivery For Coast Guard Surveillance Aircraft

The C4ISR mission system pallets' roll-on/roll-off capability helps the Coast Guard's MRS fleet accomplish multiple missions. Removing the pallets gives the planes the cargo capacity needed for humanitarian relief and evacuations.

Lockheed Martin recently delivered the ninth and final Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) mission system pallet for the U.S. Coast Guard's Medium Range Surveillance (MRS) aircraft based at Air Station Miami and Aviation Training Center Mobile.

This marks the completion of a $41 million contract awarded in November 2008 for the mission system pallets.

The C4ISR mission system pallets have roll-on/roll-off capability that gives the MRS fleet the flexibility to accomplish multiple missions. The pallet provides the aircraft with the real-time situational awareness, improved surveillance, mission data recording and enhanced secure data encryption capabilities needed for search and rescue, drug interdiction and other national security missions.

By removing the pallet, the aircraft have the cargo capacity necessary for humanitarian relief and evacuation missions.

"By collaborating closely with Coast Guard personnel throughout the process and incorporating their ideas real-time, we delivered the C4ISR systems on budget and on schedule," said Dan Schultz, vice president of Lockheed Martin's Ship and Aviation Systems.

"The Coast Guard has used our systems to track the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, direct aid following the earthquake in Haiti and thwart attempts to smuggle drugs into our country."

The C4ISR mission system pallets' commonality enables the MRS aircraft to share information with other Coast Guard air, sea and shore assets. Its interoperability allows the aircraft to communicate with other government agencies and organizations.
