NEW YORK, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- L-3 Communications has been contracted to support the U.S. Coast Guard's Fast Response Cutter program with training systems services.

New York-based L-3 Communications says Bollinger Shipyards awarded the contract to the company's Communication Systems-East division.

"This is a strategic win for our L-3 team," Greg Roberts, L-3 Communication Systems-East president, said in a statement.

"We've utilized best-in-class products, including the integrated bridge and navigation control system. … Our C4ISR system will make the Sentinel the most capable patrol boat in the Coast Guard fleet."
