Coast Guard prepares to get into Deepwater

The Coast Guard this month released its final request for proposals for the overhaul of more than 200 aircraft and 100 offshore cutters under the multibillion-dollar Integrated Deepwater System Program.

The project will replace the aging fleet of cutters and aircraft and upgrade obsolete computer and sensor technologies.

The Guard is soliciting final proposals from three contractors: Boeing Co., Integrated Coast Guard Systems'comprising Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Ingalls Shipbuilding of Pascagoula, Miss.' and Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego.

The teams have three months to submit proposals. The Guard plans to award the contract in April.
