By Tish Drake | April 24, 2008

SELEX Sensors and Airborne Systems, Arlington, Va., was selected to provide its Galileo Seaspray 7500E active electronically scanned array (AESA) surveillance radar system for the U.S. Coast Guard’s HC-130H upgrade program. The value of the four-year contract is $32 million. Fifteen HC-130H turboprops will receive the new radar systems. The radar system, which operates using a dedicated multistation display suite and surveillance/SAR, includes a Human Machine Interface implemented on large format, and touch-screen displays on the radar’s Ethernet-based Local Area Network, which enables multiple operators to use different modes and display formats simultaneously at different stations around the aircraft.
