DCNS se positionne sur les futurs cotres de l'US Coast Guard


Design présenté lors du salon MASTAmericas, en juin dernier
crédits : DCNS

13/10/2010

Le groupe naval français a décidé de se positionner sur le vaste programme de renouvellement des moyens de l'US Coast Guard. DCNS ciblerait plus particulièrement le projet Maritime Security Cutter Medium (MSCM), auparavant connu sous le nom d'Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC). Afin de remplacer les cotres de moyenne autonomie du type Reliance, en service depuis les années 60, puis les unités du type Bear, construits dans les années 80, les garde-côtes américains souhaitent commander 25 nouveaux bâtiments. Long d'un peu plus de 100 mètres pour un déplacement d'environ 3700 tonnes en charge, les MSCM entreraient en service à partir de 2019.
Fin juin, à l'occasion du salon MAST Americas, qui s'est tenu à Washington DC, DCNS a présenté ses dernières innovations en matière de sécurité et de sûreté maritime, dont un design de cotre appelé justement OPC. Dérivé des frégates réalisées jusqu'ici par le groupe français, ce bâtiment se veut à la fois robuste et endurant, avec une importante autonomie. Il dispose d'une mâture unique, regroupant les différents senseurs, une plateforme et un hangar pour hélicoptère ou drones, ainsi qu'une tourelle de 57mm.
Pour DCNS, il n'est probablement pas question de vendre directement ce concept à l'US Coast Guard et d'en assurer la réalisation en France. A l'instar de ce que son concurrent italien Fincantieri a fait avec Lockheed-Martin, le groupe tricolore cherche certainement à s'allier à un industriel américain afin d'avoir ses chances dans la compétition.
Le programme Deepwater

Le projet MSCM fait partie d'un vaste programme de renouvellement des garde-côtes américains. Deux importants volets ont déjà été lancés. Le premier porte sur le remplacement des 12 grands cotres de ma classe Hamilton par 8 Maritime Security Cutter Large (MSCL). Longs de 127.4 mètres pour un déplacement de 4300 tonnes en charge, ces bâtiments peuvent franchir 12.000 nautiques à 9 noeuds. Armés d'un canon de 57mm, quatre mitrailleuses de 12.7mm et un système Phalanx, ils peuvent embarquer deux hélicoptères. Le premier de la série, le Bertholf, est entré en service en 2008 et le second (Waesche) cette année. Ces bâtiments sont construits par Northrop Grumman à Pescagoula.
L'autre programme déjà lancé est celui des Fast Response Cutters (FRC). L'US Coast Guard a retenu le type Stan Patrol 4708 du néerlandais Damen. 34 unités de 46.8 mètres et 353 tonnes ont été commandées en septembre 2008, une option étant ouverte pour 24 navires supplémentaires. Ces bâtiments (classe Sentinel), réalisés sous licence par les chantiers américains Bollinger, vont remplacer les 41 patrouilleurs du type Island. Le premier FRC, baptisé Bernard C. Webber, a été mis sur cale au printemps dernier et doit être livré en 2011.
Enfin, on notera que l'US Coast Guard modernise également ses moyens aéronautiques. Pas moins de 36 avions de surveillance maritime CN 235 Persuader d'Airbus Military (appelés HC-144 Ocean Sentry aux USA) ont, notamment, été commandés.

U.S. Coast Guard Orders New Cutter


A $480 million contract for a new National Security Cutter (NSC) for the U.S. Coast Guard was awarded Nov. 29 to Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding - welcome news for a shipyard in need of new work.

The new ship, which will become the USCGC Hamilton (WMSL 753), is the fourth NSC. The new ships are needed to replace a 40-year-old class of cutters that has become harder to keep in service.
Northrop's Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., already has delivered two NSCs and is working on the Stratton, now 65 percent complete and scheduled to be delivered in the back half of 2011.
The new contract also includes options for long-lead material for NSCs 5 and 6, and an option to build and deliver the fifth NSC.
The new ships are an enormous leap in capability for the Coast Guard, having many new features to carry out a variety of maritime security missions. Among the improvements are an advanced communications and surveillance suite, and the ability to operate multiple rotary-wing aircraft and small boats. The 4,400-ton, 418-foot-long ships can cut the waves at 28 knots, have a range of 12,000 nautical miles, and can carry enough supplies to keep its 110-person crew at sea for two months.
The Ingalls shipyard is one of the most complex naval shipbuilding yards in the world and, in addition to building the NSCs for the Coast Guard, builds several types of ships for the U.S. Navy, including 40,000-ton amphibious assault ships, 25,000-ton amphibious transport docks and 9,300-ton destroyers.
Northrop, which is in the process of divesting all of its shipbuilding operations, has been in negotiation this year with the Navy for several additional ship contracts, but none have been awarded

US Coast Guard receives 13th HC-144A Ocean Sentry


31 January 2012 - 13:41 by the Shephard News Team




Airbus Military has announced that along with prime contractor EADS North America, it has delivered the 13th HC-144A Ocean Sentry maritime patrol aircraft to the US Coast Guard. The delivery comes two months ahead of the contractual delivery date.

The HC-144A is based on the Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter, more than 250 of which are operated by 27 countries. In addition to search and rescue, the Coast Guard is utilising the Ocean Sentry’s superior endurance and flexibility for missions including maritime patrol, cargo and personnel transport, intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance, and disaster relief.

This is the second Ocean Sentry delivery under a contract awarded in 2010, which calls for a 14th in mid-2012 and includes remaining options for up to five additional aircraft. The Coast Guard exercised an option for a 15th in August 2011. Coast Guard plans call for acquiring a total of 36 HC-144A Ocean Sentries.

According to the company, the HC-144A can remain airborne for more than nine hours, compared to just four hours for the legacy HU-25 jet that it is replacing. Airbus Military delivers the Ocean Sentry equipped with a search radar, electro-optical and infrared cameras, an Automatic Identification System for data collection from vessels at sea, and a communications suite.

The Ocean Sentry’s rear cargo ramp enables easy loading and unloading of the Coast Guard's palletized mission system. During airlift, cargo, and MEDEVAC missions, the mission system is removed, freeing up the large cabin for additional transport capacity. The rear ramp also can be opened in flight to deploy search-and-rescue equipment.

04/04/2012


Une admission au service actif, un désarmement et une commande de nouveau bâtiment... Il y a du mouvement dans la flotte des garde-côtes américains. Le 31 mars, le Stratton, troisième des huit nouveaux cotres du type NSC (National Security Cutter) a été admis au service actif. Il rejoint les Bertholf et Waesche, entrés en service en 2008 et 2010. Longs de 127.4 mètres pour un déplacement de 4300 tonnes en charge, ces bâtiments peuvent franchir 12.000 nautiques à 9 noeuds. Armés d'un canon de 57mm, quatre mitrailleuses de 12.7mm et un système Phalanx, ils peuvent embarquer deux hélicoptères. Concomitamment à l'arrivée du Stratton, un ancien cotre du type Hamilton, le Dallas, a été désarmé (il devrait être cédé aux Philippines). Deux bâtiments de cette classe, dont 12 exemplaires ont été réalisés pour l'US Coast Guard, ont déjà été désarmés,. Il s'agit des ex- Thunder et ex-Chase, transférés depuis au Nigéria et aux Philippines.
Alors qu'un quatrième NSC, le futur Hamilton, est en construction pour une mise en service en 2014, l'USCG a passé commande d'un cinquième bâtiment de ce type. Le futur Joshua James devrait entrer en flotte en 2015.

U.S. Coast Guard awards contract option for two additonal Airbus Military CN235′s


Published April 11, 2012 | By Marcel van Leeuwen





The U.S. Coast Guard has exercised a $78.5 million contract option to purchase the service’s 16th and 17th HC-144A Ocean Sentry Maritime Patrol Aircraft. The HC-144A is based on the Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter, more than 250 of which are currently in operation by 27 countries.

The option is part of a contract awarded in August 2010 for three aircraft, plus options for up to six additional aircraft.

Under this contract, Airbus Military, via prime contractor EADS North America, has already delivered two HC-144As, the 12th and 13th for the service – both on budget and ahead of schedule. The 14th aircraft is due for delivery by July.

The Coast Guard exercised the first option on the contract for the 15th HC-144A in August 2011, with delivery expected in 2013. The 16th and 17th aircraft will be delivered in 2014. The remaining options left on the contract, for up to three additional aircraft, can be exercised sometime in the next two years. Coast Guard plans call for acquiring a total of 36 HC-144As.

With the ability to remain airborne for more than ten hours, the Ocean Sentry is performing a wide range of missions for the Coast Guard, including maritime patrol, drug and migrant interdiction, disaster response, and search and rescue. The HC-144A achieved initial operational capability with the Coast Guard in 2008, and today is fully operational from Coast Guard air stations in Mobile, Ala., and Miami.

Airbus Military, via EADS North America, delivers the HC-144A equipped with a search radar, electro-optical and infrared cameras, an Automatic Identification System for data collection from vessels at sea, and a communications suite.

The Ocean Sentry’s rear cargo ramp enables easy loading and unloading of the Coast Guard’s palletized mission system. The mission system can be removed for airlift, cargo, and MEDEVAC missions, freeing up the large cabin for additional transport capacity. The rear ramp can be opened in flight to deploy search-and-rescue equipment.

EADS North America Delivers 14th HC-144A Ocean Sentry to U.S. Coast Guard


A HC-144A Ocean Sentry maritime patrol aircraft.

14:06 GMT, July 27, 2012 Herndon, Virginia | The U.S. Coast Guard took delivery this week of its 14th HC-144A Ocean Sentry maritime patrol aircraft from prime contractor EADS North America. The Ocean Sentry is based on the Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter, more than 250 of which are currently in operation by 27 countries.

The latest aircraft will join a fleet of Ocean Sentries performing in a range of different roles from Coast Guard Air Stations in Cape Cod, Mass., Mobile, Ala., and Miami. The Coast Guard utilizes the Ocean Sentry’s ten-hour endurance and advanced sensors for missions including search and rescue, drug and migrant interdiction, cargo and personnel transport, intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance, and disaster relief.

“We’re very proud to support the Coast Guard as it executes an increasingly demanding variety of air and sea-borne missions with a limited number of assets. The Ocean Sentry is essential to the service’s ability to rapidly and affordably project capability where it’s most needed,” said Sean O’Keefe, EADS North America Chairman and CEO.

The Coast Guard plans for a fleet of 36 Ocean Sentries. The latest aircaft delivery is the last of three HC-144As delivered under a base contract awarded to EADS North America in August 2010. The Coast Guard exercised options for three additional aircraft within the last year, calling for delivery of the 15th HC-144A in 2013, and aircraft 16 and 17 in 2014. The service can exercise options for up to three additional Ocean Sentries during the next two years.

Since it began service in 2008, the HC-144A has gained notoriety in high-profile missions ranging from responding to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and 2010 Haiti earthquake to interdicting narcotics smugglers in “drug sub” semi-submersibles.

EADS North America delivers the turboprop HC-144A with a search radar, electro-optical and infrared cameras, an Automatic Identification System for data collection from vessels at sea, and a communications suite. The aircraft’s rear cargo ramp enables easy loading and unloading of the Coast Guard's palletized mission system. During airlift, cargo, and MEDEVAC missions, the mission system can be removed and the cabin easily reconfigured. The rear ramp also can be opened in flight to deploy search-and-rescue equipment.

UAdditional Lockheed Martin HC-130J Surveillance Aircraft.S. Coast Guard To Acquire Three




Lockheed Martin received a $218 million contract for three additional HC-130Js for the U.S. Coast Guard. This will increase the U.S. Coast Guard fleet of HC-130Js from six to nine. The contract also includes funding for two mission suites, which are critical in supporting U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue operations. The new aircraft are scheduled to be delivered in early 2015.

“The Coast Guard, like many services in the Hercules family, continues to recapitalize with the C-130J,” said Jack Crisler, Lockheed Martin vice president for Air Mobility. “The C-130J is without equal in terms of its multi-role, multi-mission flexibility and availability. No aircraft in production — or in development — can match the capabilities of the Super Hercules.”









A C-130-H (top) displaying an historic color scheme to commemorate the 50th anniversary

The current fleet of HC-130Js, based at Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., meets long-range maritime patrol requirements in areas that cannot be patrolled efficiently by medium range surveillance aircraft or cutters. The Long Range Surveillance (LRS) aircraft also provide heavy air transport for maritime safety and security teams, port security units, and National Strike Force personnel and equipment.

The HC-130J’s special mission suite is comprised of a two mission system operator station located behind the pilot and co-pilot, a belly-mounted 360-degree long range search radar, nose-mounted forward looking infrared radar and an advanced mission communications suite. The missionized HC-130J is designed to deliver enhanced search, detection and tracking capabilities.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

EADS North America to transform CN235 aircraft into HC-144A maintenance training unit for U.S. Coast Guard personnel


May 18, 2013

By Courtney Howard
Executive Editor

HERNDON, Va., 18 May 2013. Officials at the U.S. Coast Guard Aviation Logistics Center plans to transform a prototype CN235 aircraft into an HC-144A maintenance training unit, based on the Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter.

Engineers will transform the CN235, configuring it with systems from the HC-144. The systems will have built-in faults to provide maintenance personnel with the opportunity to learn troubleshooting on actual HC-144 aircraft.


"It is very satisfying to see this airframe being used as an integral part of the HC-144A program," says Sean O'Keefe, EADS North America chairman and CEO. "We look forward to its performing many years of service in training the technicians who will keep the fleet safe in the air."



More than 230 CN235 medium-range, twin-engined transport plane are in service around the world. The CN235, originally developed jointly by CASA of Spain and Indonesia’s IPTN as a regional airliner and military transport, performs such primary military roles as maritime patrol, surveillance, and air transport.

The EADS North America HC-144 Ocean Sentry medium-ranged, twin-engined aircraft is employed by the United States Coast Guard in search-and-rescue and maritime patrol missions. The HC-144 is manufactured by Airbus Military (formerly EADS CASA), and is based on the company's CN-235 transport.

The United States Coast Guard operates 14 HC-144A Ocean Sentry Maritime Patrol Aircraft and has four additional planes on order scheduled for delivery in 2013 and 2014. With the ability to remain airborne for more than 10 hours, the Ocean Sentry is performing a wide range of maritime patrol missions for the Coast Guard, including drug and migrant interdiction, disaster response, and search and rescue.


The HC-144A achieved initial operational capability with the Coast Guard in 2008, and now is operational from Coast Guard air stations in Mobile, Ala.; Cape Cod, Mass.; and Miami.

The USCG Aviation Technical Training Center in Elizabeth City, N.C., has similar training aids for other fleet aircraft, including the EADS Eurocopter MH-65 Dolphin helicopter. The HC-144 maintenance training unit will be the first of its kind for an Airbus Military aircraft when the transformation is complete.

Coast Guard Accepts Delivery of 15th HC-144A Ocean Sentry Maritime Patrol Aircraft

The US Coast Guard (USCG) recently took delivery of another HC-144A Ocean Sentry Maritime Patrol Aircraft under a contract with EADS North America, the agency said Monday.

The acceptance of the aircraft from the manufacturing facility of EADS/CASA, Seville, Spain, parent company of EADS North America, brings the total of HC-144A Ocean Sentries delivered under the contract to 15.

The latest aircraft represents the fourth of seven HC-144A airplanes under the current contract with EADS North America. EADS is scheduled to deliver the three additional aircraft in 2014.

On Feb. 5, EADS North America, Herndon, Va., announced the USCG action to exercise the option to purchase additional aircraft with intent to bring the Coast Guard's number of HC-144A Ocean Sentries to 18 by the end of 2014.

"Every HC-144A that enters the fleet expands the service's ability to meet its increasingly demanding and diverse mission," said Sean O'Keefe, EADS North America chairman and CEO, in a statement. "We're proud to continue to provide such a vital capability."

The Coast Guard option was exercised under a contract awarded in July 2010 for three initial aircraft and options of up to six others. EADS North America generally has delivered the aircraft on budget and ahead of schedule to date, according to the company. Options exercised on the contract to date call for the delivery of the 18th HC-144A by the end of 2014.

Options allow for two additional aircraft to be acquired under the current contract. The Coast Guard can exercise those options in 2014, EADS reported.

Overall USCG plans call for a fleet of 36 HC-144A Ocean Sentries, which are based on the EADS Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter. EADS has delivered more than 230 CN235 aircraft to 29 countries, the company said. The Coast Guard is acquiring the HC-144A to serve as its primary maritime patrol aircraft, replacing aging Guardian HU-25 jets.

The Ocean Sentry can stay in the air for more than 10 hours, according to its specifications. This capability enables it to fulfill a wide range of missions for the Coast Guard, including maritime patrol, drug and migrant interdiction, disaster response, and search and rescue.

The HC-144A cockpit contains equipment that provides improved situational awareness -- equipment including radar, electro-optical and infrared cameras, an Automatic Identification System and a communications suite. Its rear cargo ramp allows servicemembers to load pallets of supplies or equipment or airlift, medical evacuation or shipping. USCG operators can open the rear ramp in flight to assist with search and rescue missions.

The Coast Guard certified the HC-144A with initial operational capability in 2008. Since then, the agency has deployed them to air stations in Mobile, Ala., Miami, Fla., and Cape Cod, Mass.

The most recent Ocean Sentry, accepted in Spain on May 31, will undergo integration into the Aviation Configuration Management System at the USCG Aviation Logistics Center, Elizabeth City, NC.

By the end of the year, the aircraft will then become the third or four Ocean Sentries based at USCG Air Station Cape Cod.
