29th May 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sikorsky on 28 May secured a modification to a previously awarded cost-plus-incentive-fee contract worth $17.9 million for support services for the USMC’s H-53K fleet.

The modification includes the provision of logistics, engineering support, programme management, training and configuration management for the H-53K system demonstration and a test article aircraft.

The company will perform pre-initial operational testing and evaluation as well as scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and software updates. Any additional support equipment may also be procured in the future under the current modification agreement.

Work will be carried out at a range of locations across the US including Shelton, Connecticut and New River, North Carolina. It is expected to conclude by December 2024 and will be financed using FY2020 research, development, test and evaluation (navy) funds worth $7.5 million which has been obligated at the time of award.

None of the FY2020 research, development, test and evaluation fund will expire at the end of this year.
