Lockheed Martin Set to Deliver MH-60R Seahawk Helicopters to Denmark


MH-60R Seahawk

Lockheed Martin announced that they are planning to deliver the first two US Navy MH-60R Seahawk helicopters to the Royal Danish Navy later on in the year. On July 9th, digital cockpits, integrated mission systems, and sensors were installed in the first two aircraft, which arrived at its Owego facility earlier in the month. According to a Lockheed Martin spokeswoman, they are anticipated to be delivered to the Navy later this year.

The MH-60R helicopter team includes Sikorsky Aircraft, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, Raytheon, and CAE. The US Navy is expected to deliver all nine helicopters to Denmark by June of 2018. The helicopter will be used to support the Royal Danish Navy’s anti-piracy missions, anti-surface warfare missions, and will also help defend and protect Denmark’s interests in the North Atlantic during international deployments.

Lockheed will be teaming up with three Denmark-based companies: Weibel Scientific, SSBV-Rovsing, and Systematic. Together, they will develop an electronic warfare support system solution, solar array simulator, and the next-generation Star Tracker. The aircraft’s modular design will enable it to adapt weapon systems to match specific mission requirements. The MH-60R Seahawk is just over 64 feet long and 17 feet high, and weighs 14,430 pounds empty or 23,500 pounds at max gross weight. It can travel up to 180 knots for up to 245 nautical miles.
