Editor's Notes


  • Sadly, a Barbers Point HH-65 Dolphin helicopter, CG 6505, crashed with the loss of all onboard on September 4th, 2008 approximately five miles south of Honolulu International Airport. The helicopter's four-man crew had just completed search and rescue drills with a 47-foot motor lifeboat from Station Honolulu when it went down at 8:15 p.m.




  • The Coast Guard accepted the fifth HC-144A, CG 2305, on 31 July. The sixth is scheduled to be delivered in December.




  • The coastal patrol ships Monsoon and Tempest were returned to the Navy at Little Creek, VA on 22 August.




  • The Coast Guard awarded a contract to ICGS to missionize the fourth HC-130J on 29 August.




  • HC-130Js are being fitted with radars to take over the International Ice Patrol missions. At the beginning of October, the Coast Guard completed Ice Patrol testing with its HC-130J. Ice Patrol reconnaissance missions last approximately seven hours and cover 1,700 nautical miles. Flights are conducted between January and August.




  • The planned delivery of two RU-38Bs earmarked to the USCG by Congress has been delayed to 2011. The aircraft currently lack any sensor and communications packages. Delivery had been expected in 2009. The aircraft are expected to be based in Miami and Puerto Rico.



CG Press Releases & News of Interest
Coast Guard Announces Award for Fast Response Cutter 9-26-08
WASHINGTON DC - The Commandant, Admiral Thad W. Allen, and Coast Guard senior leaders will host a media round table to announce the award for the design and construction of the Fast Response Cutter (FRC)/Sentinel Class patrol boat to Bollinger Shipyards, Inc., an $88 million contract.
The 153-foot cutter, which will be capable of speeds of over 28 knots, will be built at Bollinger’s shipyard in Lockport, La. This is a firm fixed price contract with an economic price adjustment. The approximate maximum value of this contract, if all options are exercised for a total of 34 patrol boats, is $1.5 billion over a period of between six and eight years.
The winning design is based on the Damen 4708, which has conducted operations similar to those the Sentinel Class patrol boat will perform. Using a proven (or parent craft) design, will ensure that the Coast Guard receives new patrol boats capable of performing the required missions as soon as possible.
We feel confident in the design we have chosen for the Sentinel Class,” said Rear Adm. Gary T. Blore, the Coast Guard's assistant commandant for acquisition. “Providing a patrol boat that will provide superior service to the American public and be crewed by the next several generations of Coast Guard men and women is an extraordinary responsibility.”
The Coast Guard’s Acquisition Directorate followed a disciplined process to determine the award of the Sentinel Class patrol boat project, including a careful analysis of operational requirements; conducting worldwide market research; close consultation with Coast Guard technical authorities; use of third party independent review and an assessment of the most competitive designs put forth by industry in responses to the Coast Guard’s June 2007 solicitation.
Besides awarding a contract for design and construction of a world-class patrol boat, we have demonstrated the importance of acquisition reforms introduced by our Commandant and how well they are serving the taxpayer.” said Rear Adm. Blore.
To meet specific U.S. Coast Guard mission requirements, a stern launch and increased speed capability were incorporated into the winning design. The Sentinel Class will be 153 feet long, capable of speeds of 28 plus knots, and armed with one stabilized remotely-operated 25mm chain gun and four crew-served .50-caliber machine guns. It will be able to operate independently for five days at sea and be underway for 2,500 hours per year. The Sentinel will accommodate 22 crew members. A state-of-the-market command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) system will be fully interoperable with other Coast Guard assets as well as those of the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
The first Sentinel will be delivered to Coast Guard District 7, based in Miami, in the fall of 2010. It will complete a comprehensive operational test and evaluation period, and then enter operational service in the Caribbean area of responsibility.
The Sentinel Class will save lives, enforce U.S. and international maritime law, and ensure national security along the United States’ 95,000 nautical miles of coastline.

Acquisition Update: Coast Guard Awards Contract to Missionize the Fourth HC-130J Aircraft

August 29, 2008



On August, 29, 2008, Coast Guard officials awarded a contract to Integrated Coast Guard Systems (ICGS) to missionize the fourth HC-130J Long Range Surveillance (LRS) Aircraft at Lockheed Martin in Greenville, S.C. The missionization process is a critical step in providing the C-130J the capabilities necessary to effectively perform the broad set of Coast Guard missions required of the new long-range search aircraft stationed at Elizabeth City, N.C., replacing the oldest legacy 1500-series HC-130H aircraft.
The Coast Guard’s C-130J “Hercules” is based on the robust C-130 basic airframe design, but new engines, propellers, avionics, and cargo-handling equipment quickly set this new aircraft apart from its predecessor. The C-130J will assume the traditional duties of the HC-130H, which include search and rescue, homeland security, law enforcement, pollution prevention, logistics, and personnel transport. However, with its new technology, it will perform these missions more efficiently and effectively.
With its Allison AE2100 engines and Dowty six-bladed propellers, the C-130J boasts advanced performance over the H model by a 20 percent increase in speed, a 40 percent increase in range, and a 40 percent higher cruising altitude. It can climb higher and faster than the H model, yet takeoff and land on shorter runways.
A completely redesigned cockpit with an integrated, digital flight management system allows the C-130J to be operated by a two-person flight deck crew, as compared to the four- to five-person crew of the H model. Dual head-up displays provide pilots with essential flight information and increase safety during low-level maneuvers, including takeoffs and landings in reduced visibility. A high-resolution, ground-mapping radar, integrated with on-board global positioning system (GPS) and inertial navigation system, provides aircrews with precise navigation and situational awareness. An enhanced cargo-handling system provides loadmasters with the ability to automatically calculate weight and balance data and, also, quickly change cargo compartment configuration to accommodate different payloads.
The C-130J Missionization Project leverages the technology that was developed by ICGS for the HC-144A (“Ocean Sentry”) Maritime Patrol Aircraft. The missionization suite includes a surface search radar, a forward-looking infrared (FLIR)/electro-optical sensor, satellite and emergency response radios, all controlled through a flight deck-mounted operator station.
Next Steps:
The aircraft will be inducted at Lockheed Martin in Greenville, S.C., by October 31, with an estimated completion date of first quarter FY10. The DD-250 would be signed by the Coast Guard at that point to certify acceptance of the aircraft from ICGS.
Priced options were negotiated to complete the missionization of aircraft five and six, although funding has not yet been identified to exercise those options. Future year budget requests will be submitted to fund them.
