1 National Security Cutter A Unique National Asset Re-capitalization of the U.S. Coast Guard

2 Ken Thompson: I think we decided we’d keep this as a bkground primer. Notes updated. Ken Thompson: I think we decided we’d keep this as a bkground primer. Notes updated. What Is Deepwater? Deepwater is the US Coast Guard’s sweeping acquisition program to replace all major ships and aircraft which perform all of the Coast Guard’s vital Deepwater missions …including Homeland Security Deepwater... “A National Priority”

3 2005 Project Scope: 93 Cutters 206 Aircraft C4ISR Systems/Network Logistics Infrastructure Project Scope: 93 Cutters 206 Aircraft C4ISR Systems/Network Logistics Infrastructure Today’s Deepwater Assets Reaching the End of Useful Service Life

4 “ When it comes to securing our homeland, and helping people along the coast, the Coast Guard has got a vital and significant mission… We must make sure that our Coast Guard has got a modern fleet of vessels. We must make sure that port security is as strong as possible.” President George W. Bush The President Deepwater is the Answer

5 Early Design Top Level Planning Factors Proprietary/Competition Sensitive 5  Replace All Deepwater Operational Assets  Specified Requirements for a National Security Cutter  Capped Funding Profile  $300M in FY02 (FY 98 Dollars)  $500M Annually FY03 Through FY42 (FY 98 Dollars)  Operating Expense (OE) Capped at $996M / Yr..  Maintain or Improve Operational Effectiveness  Manage Legacy Deepwater Assets

6 Key Operational Requirements SPS has specific NSC requirements Section 3.8  Speed, endurance, replenishment, survivability, … Requirements set direction for design development Flexibility Multi-mission capable Improved Asset / Platform Capabilities Increased major cutter speed allows greater responsiveness Improved cutter sea keeping increases on-scene presence and ability to launch boats and aircraft in adverse weather Stern launching of small boats decreases time required to prosecute Targets Common Operational Picture enables optimum use of available assets

7 National Security Cutter A Unique Component of the Integrated Deepwater System Designed to Meet the NSC Requirements of the Coast Guard’s System Performance Specification. Multi-mission, Military Vessel capable of working large range of Navy Operations. Endurance, Speed and Sea Keeping to meet all CG Missions Well equipped with Manned and Un-manned vehicles to extend detection ranges and increase prosecution of active cases. Extends Coast Guards reach through “Common Operational Picture” C4ISR Network.

8 National Security Cutter 425 Ft 3900 Ton; 28+ Knots; CODAG; Dual Stern Launch; Mission Module Capability; Dual Helo / UAV Hangar Capability; Flexible Accommodations / Operating Crew substantially smaller than comparable legacy cutters; Significantly Improved Habitability.

9 National Security Cutter Enhanced C4ISR makes the NSC a Key Asset in the Maritime Domain. New Sensors and UAV’s to Find, Enhanced domain awareness; Interdict, Highly Capable LRI Boats / VUAVs and Helos to work together; Prosecute All Targets. New Requirements: Chemical, Biological, and Radiological detection Enhanced Weapons suite Enhanced Aviation capability

10 Communications Automated Comms Systems Software Radios (Combine HF/VHF/UHF) Military SATCOM Enhanced Dual INMARSAT-B (256 kbps) Wireless Internal Comms Data Links SIPRNET/CGDN+ Cryptological Devices Communications Automated Comms Systems Software Radios (Combine HF/VHF/UHF) Military SATCOM Enhanced Dual INMARSAT-B (256 kbps) Wireless Internal Comms Data Links SIPRNET/CGDN+ Cryptological Devices Sensors Air Search Radar 3D-Air Search SPS-73 Surface/Nav Radar Fire Control Radar IFF Electronic Surveillance Measures Electro Optic/Infrared Sensors Air Search Radar 3D-Air Search SPS-73 Surface/Nav Radar Fire Control Radar IFF Electronic Surveillance Measures Electro Optic/Infrared Weapons 57mm Gun CIWS Block 1B SBROC/Nulka 50cal Guns Weapons 57mm Gun CIWS Block 1B SBROC/Nulka 50cal Guns Integrated C2 Integrated Bridge System Common C2 System Multi-Operational Consoles C2 Local Area Network Local Tactical Picture Common Tactical Picture Common Operational Picture (COP) Integrated C2 Integrated Bridge System Common C2 System Multi-Operational Consoles C2 Local Area Network Local Tactical Picture Common Tactical Picture Common Operational Picture (COP) Integrated Coast Guard Systems Proprietary Information – Competition Sensitive National Security Cutter

11 Critical System Attributes Affordability - acquisition & total ownership cost Mobility - speed, seakeeping, redundancy Mission Payload - flexible, robust, modular Boardings - multiple simultaneous boardings Crewing - optimize manpower requirements Life Margins - future growth allowance Aviation - land & refuel Navy/NATO VTOL aircraft

12 Major Factors Leading to Cost Savings System of Systems Approach to Design Cutter Crew Reduction Use of Augmented Crews = Increased on Station Days Intelligent Use of Unmanned Platforms Use of C4ISR as Force Multiplier Streamlined Logistics Infrastructure

13 NSC Model Testing  Model tested at NSWC, Carderock  28 kts at 85% of Max Continuous Rating

14 NSC Stern Ramps Selected During Concept Design Analysis Stern Ramp Benefits Increased Operational Effectiveness  Launch and Retrieve in Higher Sea States  Safer Operation Reduced LCC  One Person on Deck to Launch and Retrieve Define the Risk Used World Wide Used by CG More Prevalent on Smaller Ships but Larger Ships are Being Constructed with Stern Ramps Largest 240 Ft Frigate Coast Guard Has Considered  270 Ft WMEC  170 Ft Cyclone Class

15 Stern Ramp (Continued) Current Stern Ramp Design Risk Off-Ramp  SRP Launching from a Davit provides Risk Off-Ramp for Stern Design  Effect on Crewing  Adds Flexibility

16 NSC Weapon System NSC Requirements Anti Ship Cruise Missile Anti Ship Defense Law Enforcement  Command Presence  Compel Compliance DoD USCG

17 Flight Deck Landing Area SPS - Launch and Retrieve Navy and NATO VTOLS SH60 and MH60 variants NATO Equivalent ASIST Integrated With Our IDS CONOPS MCH and VUAV

18 Re-capitalization of the Coast Guard is a National Imperative The National Security Cutter is the first of the new class of cutters supporting this effort. Designed from the keel up, as part of a System of Systems, to maximize operational effectiveness at lowest possible Total Ownership Cost.
