Sikorsky contracted for CH-53K parts
Sikorsky has been awarded a $21.7 million delivery order for data transfer units and defensive electronic countermeasure system replacement units for the CH-53K rotorcraft.
These are being ordered against an existing basic ordering agreement, and will replace subsystems within the CH-53K production aircraft.
Tasks include investigation, systems engineering support, risk analysis, integration development, weight impact and publication updates.
Work will be carried out across the US, and is expected to be completed in January 2021.
Sikorsky has also been awarded a $7.1 million order against the same agreement for engineering, development, tooling, manufacturing, qualification, reporting and delivery of the nose, main, intermediate and tail gearbox gears in support of the low rate initial production of the CH-53K aircraft.
This work will be carried out in Stratford, Connecticut, and is expected to complete in October 2020.
