Lockheed to design bespoke MH-60R hardware and software for India

15th June 2020 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has secured a $375.48 million undefinitised contract modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract from the Naval Air Systems Command.

The contract involves the design and development of unique hardware and software in the Multi-Role Helicopter MH-60R development programme for the Indian armed forces.

The work is due to take place in Owego, New York and Stratford, Connecticut and is scheduled to be completed by June 2025.

At least $117.7 million has been obligated at the time of award from FMS funds none of which will expire at the end of FY2020.

This comes after the US DoD awarded a $904.8 million contract for Lockheed Martin to build 24 airframes for the MH-60R in May 2020. This included 21 aircraft for the Indian Navy and three for the USN.
