Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has won a potential five-year, $32 million contract to supply the U.S. Coast Guard with radar systems for maritime surveillance, counterterrorism and drug interdiction missions.
The company will provide AN/PY-11 multimode radars, support equipment, spares and technical services to the Coast Guard under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Exelis said Wednesday.
ELTA Systems Ltd. and Exelis jointly produce the AN/PY-11 for integration onto the service’s Super Hercules long-range surveillance planes.
Pete Martin, director of programs and defense systems for Exelis’ electronic attack and release systems business, said the company intends for the radar to help HC-130J crews protect U.S. shorelines.
The company supplied AN/PY-11 radars to the Coast Guard under a $6.5 million contract awarded in October 2012.
