Deepwater in Hot Water

The Coast Guard’s air and sea fleet are aging, with most of the fleet dating back to the 1950s and 1960s.  Responding to the need to update the fleet and react to a shifting threat, the Coast Guard created the Integrated Deepwater System in 2002, which, according to the Coast Guard’s website is “a critical multi-year program to modernize and replace the Coast Guard’s aging ships and aircraft, and improve command and control and logistics systems.  It is the largest acquisition in the history of the Coast Guard.  Integrated Coast Guard Systems has been managing the IDS contract since it was awarded in June, 2002.”  However, there are serious concerns with the procurement of aircraft and the National Security Cutter.
