Lockheed Martin Secures MH-60R Avionics Agreement
The U.S. Navy has issued a $27.9-million modification to a Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training contract covering long lead materials and support for nine mission avionics systems and common cockpits for the Danish government’s Sikorsky MH-60Rs. The agreement, which is part of the foreign military sales (FMS) program, is with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization.
Work will be split into a number of locations, with much of it taking place in Farmingdale (around 55 percent) and Owego, N.Y. (31 percent) through June 2013. The rest will occur in Ciudad Real, Spain (5 percent), Syracuse, N.Y. (5 percent), Everett, Wash. (3 percent), and at various facilities around the U.S.
