Lockheed Martin to deliver MH-60R/S cockpits, integrated systems under $1 billion U.S. Navy contract

Helicopter

WASHINGTON, 6 April 2012. Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) in Bethesda, Md., won from the U.S. Navy a five-year, $1.05 billion contract to provide more than 200 digital cockpits, integrated mission systems, and sensors for the Navy’s MH-60R Romeo and MH-60S Sierra helicopters, designed and manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, Conn.

The contract includes: 162 cockpits, integrated missions systems, and sensors for MH-60R anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare helicopter, as well as 62 digital cockpits for Sierra aircraft, used for ship-to-ship cargo resupply, search and rescue, and close-in defense of Navy ships.


"U.S. Navy crews operating the 300-plus MH-60 Romeo and Sierra helicopters already in the fleet understand just how critical these aircraft are to protecting our ships from surface and undersea threats," says Rear Adm. Paul Grosklags, U.S. Naval Air Systems vice commander. "This contract represents the Navy's commitment to build and field the most technologically advanced maritime helicopter fleet in the world."

"This contract award ensures uninterrupted, on-time deliveries of the MH-60R and MH-60S helicopter to the U.S. Navy fleet," explains Dan Spoor, vice president of aviation systems for Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems & Sensors business. "Plus the multi-year structure, versus an annual contract, allows us to provide our customer with more than 10 percent savings annually, surpassing Pentagon cost predictions."

Lockheed Martin engineers in Owego, N.Y., will provide the digital cockpit common to the MH-60R and MH-60S, and integrate the mission systems and sensors aboard the MH-60R helicopter.
