Maritime Security Cutter


Maritime Security Cutter

Under the U.S. Coast Guard's Deepwater program, Northrop Grumman has been awarded approximately $250 million in production and long lead material contracts for the first Maritime Security Cutter, Large (WMSL). These contracts, awarded to the company's Ship Systems sector, bring the lead ship of the most advanced cutter class in the Coast Guard's fleet one step closer to delivery and leverage significant continued production savings across three different cutter classes by sharing the same design team, with common systems, logistics, and training.

The WMSL will be a 421-foot vessel with a 4,112-ton displacement at full load, when delivered, and will be powered by a twin-screw combined diesel and gas turbine power propulsion plant designed to cruise at a maximum speed of 28 knots. The cutter will include an aft launch and recovery area for two rigid hull inflatable boats, a flight deck to accommodate a range of rotary-wing manned and unmanned aircraft and state of the art command and control electronics.

The Ship Systems sector leads the construction effort as a major partner in Integrated Coast Guard Systems, a joint venture of Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin. The ship will be manufactured at the Northrop Grumman's Pascagoula shipyard. Construction will begin in September 2004 with the keel laying to follow in April 2005. The anticipated delivery date for the lead ship is the second quarter of 2007.
