Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are building the ships. "The industry team is working closely with the Coast Guard to deliver the NSC on time according to the mutually agreed upon schedule," said a spokeswoman for Integrated Coast Guard Systems, the joint venture between Lockheed and Northrop.
