$28M for Booz Allen to Analyze USCG Electronic Vulnerabilities
Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc. of Herndon, VA received a modified contract for $28 million, in exchange for “survivability and vulnerability technical research and development analysis for U.S. Coast Guard ship, aviation, and Command and Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems.” At this time $7.7 million has been committed. Offutt AFB, NB issued the contract (SP0700-03-D-1380, Delivery Order: 0250).
C4ISR security has been an issue in the Coast Guard’s Deepwater recapitalization program, with claims that the systems used in the Island Class patrol cutter upgrades were inherently insecure, and that similar issues are present in the Legend Class National Security Cutters.
