USCG Cutter to be Named After Bertholf

Wednesday, November 23, 2005
The U.S. Coast Guard recently announced that the first Deepwater National Security Cutter (NSC), being built at Northrop Grumman's Pascagoula, Miss. facility, will be named Bertholf in honor of the organization's first Commandant, Ellsworth Price Bertholf (1866-1921), according to a recent PrimeZone report. Northrop Grumman Corporation's Ship Systems sector is building the ship under contract from Integrated Coast Guard Systems LLP, a joint venture of Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin Corporation. The ship currently stands at 31 percent complete. The NSC will be a 418 ft. (127 m) ship with a 4,300-ton displacement at full load. Powered by a twin-screw combined diesel-and-gas turbine-power propulsion plant, the NSC is designed to travel at 28 knots max speed. The cutter will include an aft launch and recovery area for two rigid-hull inflatable boats; a flight deck to accommodate a range of rotary-wing manned and unmanned aircraft and command-and-control electronics.
