MH-60S(click to view full) Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. in Stratford, CT received a $271.4 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for Knight Hawk Helicopters (MH-60S). The MH-60S Knight Hawk is one of the US Navy’s new multi-role helicopter variants, replacing the Vietnam-era CH-46 Sea Knights. Work will be performed in Stratford, CT and is expected to be complete by Dec. 31, 2007. The number of helicopters procured was not disclosed by DefenseLINK. Purchasing is done via multi-year contracts, and correspondence with any given modification is difficult to ascertain – q.v. the $33.3 million modification in January. Even Sikorsky was unable to give us details re: numbers when queried. This was a sole source contract initiated on Oct. 4, 2000 by the Army Aviation and Missile Command in Redstone Arsenal, AL (DAAH23-02-C-0006).
