ITT Exelis has won a $15 million contract to build composite components for the latest variant of Sikorsky‘s commercial utility helicopter, UPI reported Tuesday.

Exelis will provide the composite tail rotor blade components such as the blades, composite laminate beam and additional hardware for final assembly for the S-76D.

Mike Blair, Exelis aerostructure business vice president and general manager, said composite structures will make the S-76D “lighter, more fuel efficient and more durable.”

Exelis will perform work on the contract at its Salt Lake City facility.

UPI reports that Exelis has fabricated composite structures for the S-76C, the S-76D’s predecessor and another Sikorsky-built heavy-lift helicopter, the CH-53K.
