RUAG Australia overhauls Romeos for USN

30th October 2020 - 11:54 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Deal is awarded under collaborative Australian-US governmental initiative

RUAG Australia has been awarded new contracts by the USN for component MRO work on MH-60R Seahawk helicopters, the company announced on 28 October.

This is the second contract with the USN for RUAG Australia in Q3 2020, following a deal in August for MRO on F/A-18 Hornets.

These contracts are authorised under the AUSMIN Defence Acquisition Committee (ADAC) initiative, a collaboration between the US and Australian Departments of Defence.

‘MRO support for the platform’s complex componentry requires specialised treatment and repair methods inherent to RUAG Australia’s proven aircraft component capabilities,’ the company claimed, adding that it is building on experience gained in component support for the SH-60B Seahawk.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, the USN operates 278 MH-60R helicopters.
