Lockheed Martin to Repair U.S. Navy’s Helicopter Parts
Lockheed Martin, a US-based global aerospace, defense, security, and advanced technology company, has received a USD 7.2 million contract to repair 12 items of the common cockpit for the U.S. Navy’s H-60R/S helicopters.
The MH-60R is the Navy’s primary anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare platform, and the most advanced maritime multi-mission helicopter in operation and deployed globally today.
The MH-60S, also known as “Sierra”, is the Navy’s maritime workhorse, which can perform missions ranging from vertical replenishment to Medevac.
The contractor will perform the majority of work in Owego, N.Y. (77 percent), followed by Farmingdale, N.Y. (9 percent), Phoenix, Ariz. and Salt Lake City, Utah (6 percent each) and Hershey, Pa. (2 percent).
The job is expected to be completed by January 12th, 2016.
