BAE Systems bags US Coast Guard gun mount delivery contract

The US Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded BAE Systems Land and Armaments L.P. a $16.8 million contract to deliver two 57mm MK 110 Mod 0 gun mounts and associated software for the US Coast Guard.

The MK 110 Mod 0 gun mount is fielded on the service’s National Security and Offshore Patrol Cutters and consists of a 57mm gun, ammunition hoist, power distribution panel, muzzle velocity radar, barrel-mounted television camera and a ruggedized laptop computer gun control panel.

The gun mount is required to defeat medium and short-range surface targets, and provide warning and disabling fire in support of anti-surface warfare.

BAE Systems will perform the work in Louisville, Kentucky, and is expected to deliver the systems by November 2019.
