ITT Exelis to Supply USCG With Airborne Surveillance Radar Systems

ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has received a $6.5 million award to supply a radar system to the U.S. Coast Guard. The radar will support the service’s maritime reconnaissance mission.

Integrated on the new HC-130J Super Hercules long-range surveillance aircraft, the AN/APY-11 multimode radar is designed to support the Coast Guard’s changing missions, including long-range surveillance, drug interdiction and counterterrorism.


First provided to the Coast Guard under a 2005 contract award, the AN/APY-11 multimode radar is produced by Exelis and partner ELTA Systems Ltd.

“Our multimode radar system is the most effective maritime surveillance radar in its class,” said Peter Martin, director of Programs, Defense Systems, for the Exelis Electronic Attack & Release Systems business. “As the Coast Guard’s mission continues to grow, our radar will adapt to evolving operational requirements.”

The HC-130J aircraft performs maritime surveillance in areas that cannot be patrolled efficiently by medium-range surveillance aircraft or cutters. The aircraft also provides heavy air transport for maritime safety and security teams, port security units and National Strike Force personnel and equipment.
