SH-60B fires Penguin(click to view full) The Maritime Helicopter Support Co. in Woodbridge, VA recently received a $1.409 billion firm-fixed-price, performance based logistics contract to repair US Navy Seahawk helicopters, and many of their mission systems. The firm has received a number of contracts like this in the past, and is a joint venture between helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky in Connecticut, and mission systems integrator Lockheed Martin in New York. The contract covers the full range of serving Seahawk helicopters, including older SH-60B & SH-60F Seahawk and HH-60H “Rescue Hawk” models, and new MH-60R and MH-60S Seahawk machines. It runs for 4 years, with no option periods. Work will be performed in Stratford, CT (70%), and Owego, NY (30%), and is expected to be complete by January 2015. This contract was not competitively awarded by the US Naval Inventory Control Point in Philadelphia, PA (N00383-11-D-003F).
