Under a contract with the U.S. Coast Guard, Bollinger Shipyards of Louisiana laid down the keel of the first of a new class of cutters. The service may buy up to thirty-four of the new Sentinel class ships. Bollinger has won a contract to build at least four.
If all aspects of the contract are exercised the U.S.C.G. may buy another thirty of the versatile ships from multiple shipyards. Bollinger hopes to win a decent amount of the contract. It is expected that the total construction cost of the thirty-four ships will be over $1.5 billion.
The Sentinel is part of the modernization of the Coast Guard. This service has taken on many new responsibilities as part of the Homeland Security Department. The U.S.C.G. used to be part of the Department of Transportation during peace time and then would be transferred to the Department of Navy.

The Department of Transportation awarded Raytheon a contract to develop a system to track airline flights in flight. The AP reports that the goal of this system is to better utilize available air space as more and more aircraft fly commercially. No value for the contract was given. Raytheon has been making air traffic control radars for military and civil applications for years and this work seems to be an extension of that. The U.S. government has been investing over the last several years in new systems for installation at airfields for air traffic control. One of the goals of this new contract is to integrate a variety of existing surveillance and tracking systems. The amount of aircraft flying in the U.S. air space has grown considerably over the last few decades and some busier airports have issues with fitting in all of the planned flights.
