Lockheed Martin has secured Department of Defense (DOD) contracts totaling $165.7 million to provide radar systems and mission avionics for a fleet of U.S. and foreign military MH-60R Sikorsky Seahawk helicopters. 
The aerospace and defense manufacturer won a $98.4 million firm-fixed-price indefinite-delivery contract to supply up to 50 AN/APS-153(V)1 automatic radar periscope multimode radar kits for the U.S. Navy’s fleet of MH-60R helicopters. Delivery is expected by September 2016. 

Separately, Lockheed was awarded a $67.3 million contract to supply common cockpits and mission avionics for the Danish military fleet of nine MH-60R aircraft. The contract was distributed under the foreign military sales program, with delivery required by June 2018.
