CGNR 2002, an HC-130J Super Hercules long range surveillance aircraft outfitted with the Minotaur Mission System Suite, arrived at Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak, Alaska, July 30, 2019. It is the fifth and final HC-130J with Minotaur to be stationed there. The HC-130J features more advanced engines and propellers than the HC-130H model, and the Minotaur Mission System Suite provides increased capabilities for use of the sensors, radar and intelligence-gathering equipment installed on the aircraft.
