General Dynamics Awarded $176 Million Contract from U.S. Coast Guard for Support of the Rescue 21 System — Press Release

Contract provides for the system maintenance and related management services needed to keep the life-saving Rescue 21 system operational and technically current.

TAUNTON, Mass., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Coast Guard to provide ongoing sustainment services for the national Rescue 21 search and rescue system. General Dynamics, the prime contractor for the system’s design, development and deployment, will continue to provide field service personnel, technical support and maintenance of the system. Rescue 21 currently comprises 232 fixed towers and related facilities that enable the Coast Guard to monitor the nation’s coastline and inland waterways; it also serves as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s first nationwide command, control and communications network. The four-year contract has a total potential value of $176 million if all options are exercised.

“The Rescue 21 system’s 232 fixed towers have enabled life-saving assistance for countless boaters from Seattle to Key West to Massachusetts and many points in between,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. “With this award we will continue our collaboration and support of the Coast Guard’s Rescue 21 system and its expanding role within the Department of Homeland Security.”

The Rescue 21 system will be a network of 32 Coast Guard sector command centers, 167 stations and more than 260 fixed towers located along U.S. waterways and the shores of the Great Lakes, Hawaii, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Using advanced direction-finding technologies and digital communications, the Coast Guard rapidly and efficiently responds to emergency calls from mariners while coordinating with federal, state and local law enforcement and first responders. The system also supports the Coast Guard’s homeland security missions that include drug interdiction, defense readiness, marine environmental protection and law enforcement.

More information on the Rescue 21 system and border security solutions by General Dynamics C4 Systems is available online at www.gdc4s.com/Rescue21.

C-130J Production Continues

Even though as part of the FY13 budget the Defense Department is proposing to restructure the existing C-130 fleet and cancelling the Aviation Modernization Program (AMP) production of the C-130J continues. With this the Air Force place a contract with Lockheed Martin (LMT) for 7 more of the capable transport for use by itself and the Marine Corps.

The $70 million option will procure 4 MC-130J tankers, 2 AC-130J gunships and a HC-130J for the Coast Guard. This is under the current production contract.

The next five year budget, though, due to the desire to cut several hundred billion in spending over the next five years is not so kind to the program. It sees a forty-one percent cut to the planned spending for production while also ending the AMP.

The AMP had been developed by Boeing (BA) but the plan was to have another contest to award the production and retrofit contract. Boeing under the development contract would have done some of the upgrades but the bulk would have been done by the winner of the new effort.

The budget also ends the C-27J Joint Cargo Aircraft (JCA) program which was buying twin engined transports from L-3 Communications (LLL) for use by the USAF Guard. This capability will be replaced by C-130 performing that mission. With the ending of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan the planned use of the C-27J would have been much less then intended.

There is no guarantee that any of these budget proposals are final until Congress votes on the 2013 defense budget this year. They are the final say on what is cut and what is kept but generally they follow the Pentagon’s proposals.

Coast Guard Orders fourth National Security Cutter from Northrop Grumman

Despite their potential plans to exit the shipbuilding business as well as moving ahead with closing some of their existing shipyards Northrop Grumman (NOC) still is receiving contracts for new ships. This is on top of their existing work refitting U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and other ships as well as participating in the building of amphibious ships and destroyers.

The latest contract they received was from the U.S. Coast Guard who ordered the fourth National Security Cutter (NSC) from the company. This contract is worth almost five hundred million dollars. So far two of the ships have been delivered with a third under construction.

The National Security or Legend class cutter is one of the new ships, aircraft and other systems that the U.S.C.G. included in their Deepwater System program to provide major upgrades to their capability. They are large ships with comprehensive electronic systems and have high speed and long range to enable them to patrol a larger area more efficiently.

Northrop has used the NSC hull and design as the basis for a rapidly available frigate design offered to the U.S. Navy. This would be used to support the Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) under construction by General Dynamics (GD) and Lockheed Martin (LMT).

The U.S. demand for combat ships is being reduced and further budget pressure may reduce them even more. This has led Northrop to discuss exiting the shipbuilding business completely. There have already been companies offering to buy the capability but the large defense contractor has yet to move on the sale.

Bollinger Shipyard Lays Keel Of First New USCG Cutter

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.

Defense Department Awards Further RFID Contract

Continuing their investment in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) the United States’ Defense Department awarded an Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) contract for RFID equipment. Intermec, Inc. was one of the winners. If all options on the contract are awarded it could be for nine years with a value up to $418 million.

Intermec has been making equipment for the electronic tracking of goods for over twenty years and has received significant contracts from DoD in the past. RFID has made it easier and more efficient to track and ship materiel by providing quick means to identify cargo and route it. Under the Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) – IV contract not only DoD entities but the U.S. Coast Guard, NATO and other allies as well as foreign countries may purchase this technology. Intermec like with all ID/IQ contracts is not necessarily guaranteed any work from it depending on how the U.S. wants to exercise the contract.

Coast Guard Awards Northrop Grumman Data Management Contract

The U.S. Coast Guard, part of the Department of Homeland Security, awarded Northrop Grumman a contract to develop the core data exchange capability for the Automatic Identification System (Nationwide AIS). The press release is at MSNBC.com. Nationwide AIS will be a system that combines transponder data from ships with other data collection to track and identify ships as they approach the U.S coast line. The contract is worth about $11 million but has the potential to be worth over $65 million.
