The Coast Guard is preparing for testing and delivery of a C-37B long range command and control aircraft, designated CG 102, following completion of the external paint process March 18.
The delivery order for purchase and conversion of a G-550 aircraft was issued in October 2020. The conversion to a C-37B was completed by outfitting the aircraft with specialized equipment and sensors to meet Coast Guard mission needs.
CG 102 will undergo readiness reviews and testing during April and May leading up to its scheduled delivery in June 2022.
CG 102 receives external paint, striping and other aircraft markings at Gulfstream’s paint hangar in Savannah, Georgia. With this milestone, CG 102 is a step closer to contract delivery in June 2022. U.S. Coast Guard photo.
The Coast Guard operates two C-37B long range command and control aircraft that provide command and control and required-use transport worldwide for Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security leadership.
