The NDRSMP will modernize and upgrade the increasingly obsolescent, national distress and response system used to monitor the international distress frequency, coordinate search and rescue response operations, and communicate with commercial and recreational vessels that might be at risk.
The BAE SYSTEMS team will perform the vessel communication system and installation design; develop the vessel mission software; perform vessel surveys; remove legacy equipment; and install and test the new NDRSMP communications systems on the vessels.
The NDRSMP will enable the Coast Guard to receive maritime distress and emergency response alerts, coordinate search and rescue operations, communicate with mariners and enable command and control of responding facilities for all operational missions that occur in coastal areas and inland waterways.
