10 years of the US Coast Guard's HC-130J

Defence IQ continues its coverage of US maritime patrol developments with this audio programme featuring insight from Lt. Cdr. Ian Bastek. As the US Coast Guard's HC-130J Platform Manager, Bastek tells us how the aircraft has been enhanced since its introduction to the USCG a decade ago and what he feels are the technologies and TTPs that must be enhanced to see effective maritime patrol continue in the years to come.
