GD Mission Systems scores $125.6M contract to support Coast Guard command and control system

General Dynamics Mission Systems has won a $125.6 million contract to provide the U.S. Coast Guard with Rescue 21 program management, system support and maintenance and sustainment engineering support.

The contract supports the Coast Guard’s Command, Control and Communications Engineering Center.

General Dynamics said in a release that Rescue 21 is the Coast Guard’s advanced command, control and direction-finding communications system. The system was created to better locate mariners in distress, save lives and property at sea and on navigable rivers.

The system is operational along the entire Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts of the continental United States as well as the shores of the Great Lakes, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Guam and Mariana Islands.
