Lockheed Martin Unveils 100th Multimission Helicopter

Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky have jointly unveiled the 100th MH-60 Romeo Multimission helicopter. The helicopter will be flown from Owego, N.Y., to San Diego, Calif., at the Naval Base Coronado.

The MH-60 is requested globally with the Royal Australian Navy adding 24 to the aircraft's production list, currently reaching 324. According to Lockheed's Director of Naval Helicopter Programs George Barton, Korea and India are in talks to obtain aircraft for their naval units.

“The most important thing is that it allows the United States Navy to extend global partnerships,“ Barton said. He also stated the aircraft was the most capable maritime multimissions helicopters in the world.

Lockheed integrated a self-defense system for the MH-60 to protect it from missile threats. The firm also integrated the Sikorsky built helicopter's digital cockpit, a multimode radar, long-range infrared camera and other advanced sensors.
