Aviation Systems


CSEngineering provides support to the United States Coast Guard (USCG), Aviation Logistics Center (ALC) with system engineering support for the Aviation Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) initiatives within the Engineering Services Division (ESD) as well as developing a robust Aviation Life Support Equipment (ALSE) centralization program.

We also provide aviation C4ISR systems engineering services, technical assistance, and other services used to support the CG-413 Program Management Office and the ALSE Program. ALSE services include fit tests, engineering, and validation via the Aircraft Configuration Control Board (ACCB) process, for any ALSE gear that is connected to an aircraft. Our ALSE Technical Services team manages all ALSE Time Compliance and Special Compliance Technical Orders (TCTO's and SCTO's).

Weapon Systems

Aircraft Systems

We provide integrated support for USAF air superiority missile and weapons. This includes Advanced Medium Range Air To Air Missiles (AMRAAM), AGM-88 High Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM), ADM-160B Miniature Air-Launched Decoy (MALD), Special Operations Forces / Personnel Rescue (SOF/PR) aircraft gun systems, aircraft gun systems and bomb rack / release systems.

Aircraft gun systems, bomb rack/release systems we support include all aircraft gun and bomb rack/release systems used on A-10, AC-130, MC-130, B-1, B-2, B-52, F-14, F-15, F-16, F/A-18, F-22, F-35, H-1, and H-60 aircraft. 


CSEngineering also supports SOF/PR aircraft weapons systems used on AC-130U/W/J gunships, HH-60G, CV-22 and UH-1 helicopters. These gun systems include the 105mm Howitzer, 40mm Cannon, 30mm GAU-23, 25mm GAU-12/U, .50 caliber GAU-18/A and GAU- 21, 7.62mm GAU-2C, and 7.62mm M240D aircraft mounted weapon systems, the associated mounting systems, and support equipment.


CSEngineering is proud to support the United States Coast Guard (USCG), Aviation Logistics Center (ALC), Medium Range Recovery (MRR) Product Line by providing overhaul and modification services for the USCG’s fleet of MH-60T helicopters. The MH-60T is an all weather, medium-range helicopter (specialized for search and recovery) similar to the Navy HH-60H, with its basic roots in the Army H-60 Blackhawk. The service began to operate the HH-60J in 1990 as a replacement to the now-retired HH-3F Pelican, and it is typically operated by a crew of four.

Specifically, the USCG acquires used SH-60F helicopters from the U.S. Navy and reconfigures the aircraft for the unique USCG mission. Each aircraft is reconditioned from end to end, tested, certified, and returned to the operational fleet as an MH-60T.

We provide the MRR Product Line with engineering, technical, and logistic services for the development, production and delivery of: Time Compliance Technical Orders (TCTO’s), aviation engineering consultation and logistical planning support.

ERAM Modernization

Modernizing ATC

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) replaced the forty-year-old En Route Host computer and backup system used at Twenty (20) FAA Air Route Traffic Control Centers nationwide. As such, the transition to ERAM is one of the most complex, challenging, and ambitious programs deployed by FAA in recent times. In effect, this transition represents a live transplant of the "heart"of today's air traffic control system while continuing safe and efficient flight operations for the flying public.


As future enhancements of the ERAM are implemented, continued operation of the system require high fidelity Configuration Management (CM) processes. 


ERAM is a hub for the next modernization stage, and as such, must remain a safe, efficient, and effective platform for the development and deployment of planned future capabilities. CSEngineering leads the CM process to facilitate orderly management of system information and system changes for such beneficial purposes as to revise capability; improve performance, reliability, or maintainability; extend life; reduce cost; reduce risk and liability; or correct defects. 

Terminal Facilities

Terminal Facilities Support is responsible for the design and construction of all terminal structures in the National Airspace System (NAS). Terminal Facilities oversees the construction and modification of Airport Traffic Control Towers (ATCT) and Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON). Terminal Facilities is also responsible for the maintenance and repair of these facilities conducted with Facilities and Equipment (F&E) funding. CSEngineering provides support in designing and building new facilities or repairing and upgrading existing facilities. We also oversee the disposition of facilities which will no longer be used. 

CSEngineering provides financial tracking documentation and analysis, schedule tracking and analysis, risk monitoring and mitigation, business process evaluation and improvement, review and analysis of construction designs and progress reports, and requirements development input for engineering studies. 

Terminal Facilities

COMSEC Certifications

CSEngineering is experienced in performing Communication Security (COMSEC) certifications for government and military aircraft. Currently, we serve as the Aviation TEMPEST Field Technical Authority (AFTA) in the ESB Avionics Support Cell at the USCG ALC.

Our team performs COMSEC certifications of Government assets and all mission assets. Systems we inspect include Vinson Secure Voice, Advanced Narrow Band Digital Voice Terminal (ANDVT), Secure Voice Satellite Communications, secure STE systems, secure data systems, Mode S Elementary and enhanced Surveillance, Mode 4 IFF, and Mode 5 IFF.

We provide TEMPEST guidance for all proposed aviation related COMSEC Systems and coordinate and assist with Instrumented TEMPEST Surveys (ITS) for each new COMSEC installation or modification in each USCG Type/Model/Series aircraft. We ensure all COMSEC parameters are within the TEMPEST certification limits. CSEngineering also provides training to military, civilian, and contractor personnel to assist in certifying aircraft.
