10th April 2012 - 14:26 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has announced that the US Navy has awarded it a five-year contract to provide more than 200 digital cockpits and integrated mission systems and sensors for the Navy MH-60R Romeo and MH-60S Sierra helicopters. The contract, announced 5 April 2012, is worth $1.05 billion.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will provide 162 cockpits, integrated missions systems and sensors for MH-60R Romeo anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare helicopter; and 62 digital cockpits to complete the Navy’s programme of record for the Sierra aircraft, which is used for ship-to-ship cargo resupply, search and rescue, and close-in defense of Navy ships.

According to the company, the contract will ensure ‘uninterrupted and on-time deliveries of the MH-60R and MH-60S helicopter to the US Navy fleet’, as well as providing ‘more than 10 percent savings annually, surpassing Pentagon cost predictions.’

Lockheed Martin provides the digital cockpit common to the MH-60R and MH-60S, and integrates the mission systems and sensors aboard the MH-60R helicopter.
