Sikorsky’s $8.5-11.7B “Multi-Year 8” H-60 Helicopter Contract
September 7/23: Software Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems won a $49.5 million deal, which provides technical, management, and process support to maintain the software for all H-60 aircraft variants in support of the Navy and the governments of Australia, Denmark, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Greece, and Norway. Work will be performed in Owego, New York, and is expected to be completed in September 2028.
In July 2012, the US military signed another huge contract with Sikorsky. With production of the Army’s HH/UH-60M, and the Navy’s MH-60S and MH-60R helicopters, all in full swing, there’s no question about the need for future orders. In that environment, multi-year contracts allow efficiencies in purchasing, and security of staffing, throughout Sikorsky’s supply chain. These new helicopter types are also available to Foreign Military Sales class customers, under the American contract’s advantageous pricing and terms. The UH-60M, MH-60S and MH-60R models have already inked export deals, and official requests indicate that more deals are in the pipeline.
The new multi-year 2013-2017 contract could be worth up to $11.7 billion, and follows a 5-year, multi-service “MYP-VII” contract in December 2007. Like its predecessor, it covers UH-60M Black Hawk troop transport and light cargo helicopters, Army HH-60M SAR (Search And Rescue) / MEDEVAC (MEDical EVACuation) helicopters, and the US Navy’s MH-60S and MH-60R Seahawk helicopters.
