MH60R-helicopterLockheed Martin and Sikorsky Aircraft's joint venture is discussing a follow-on contract with the U.S. Navy to maintain the service's H-60 helicopter fleet, Washington Business Journal reported Monday.

Jill Aitoro writes the Maritime Helicopter Support Co. works to repair, modify and procure more than 1,700 airframe and avionics parts for the H-60 series aircraft under the existing contract.

MHSCo also wants to chase maintenance works for presidential helicopters in the future, the report says.

Rod Skotty, president of MHSCo, told a media briefing the company is planning to apply its “model to any large platform where sustainment challenges exist,“ Aitoro reports.

Skotty said the Navy’s fleet of P-3 Orion surveillance aircraft is also among the platforms MHSCo is seeking to sustain with the company's concept, the Business Journal reports.
