EADS CASA, a business unit of European Aeronautic Defense & Space Company, provides the Fully Integrated Tactical System in support of the Deepwater program for the United States Coast Guard. Deepwater is spearheaded by Integrated Coast Guard Systems (ICGS), a joint venture between Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems and Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, a team bringing together 100 U.S. companies and four international companies, including EADS.
The Coast Guard's Deepwater Program will ensure that the Coast Guard - and the nation - has cutters, aircraft, and command-and-control systems that can capably defend against maritime threats far out to sea, before they can reach U.S. citizens, territory, or vital interests. The Integrated Deepwater System is critical to the Coast Guard's future and to America's ability to safeguard homeland and maritime security for generations to come.
