Abstract : A study was conducted to define and select an avionics and sensor system for a U. S. Coast Guard multimission fixed-wing twin-jet aircraft. The system requirements were compiled from previous concept definition studies done under this contract for a search and rescue helicopter and from analysis of mission scenarios fitted to the unique USCG missions. Study tasks included definition of the avionics and sensor requirements to meet mission goals consistent with constraints of a preselected baseline aircraft. A full complement of equipment was recommended along with interface drawings and installation layouts. A system performance specification and subsystem procurement specifications were developed.
