U.S. Navy Renews Successful Helicopter Logistics Program with $1.4B Follow-on Contract


The Maritime Helicopter Support Company, a joint ven-


ture of Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. has received a $1.4 billion firm fixed price contract from the U.S. Navy to continue providing perform- ance-based logistics support for more than 490 in-service H-60 SEAHAWK® helicopters. The contract requires the Maritime Helicopter Support Company (MHSCo) to manage the supply chain and provide as- needed repair of more than 1,250 aircraft components and subsystems for the Navy’s H-60 Tip-to-Tail performance-based logistics (PBL) program. Supported aircraft include Navy SH-60B, SH-60F, HH-60H, MH-60R and MH-60S heli- copters, Coast Guard HH-60J helicopters and other H-60 air- craft operated by customers of the Navy’s Foreign Military Sales program.


“H-60 Tip-to-Tail is recog- nized as one of the U.S. Navy’s most successful PBL programs,” said RADM Raymond Berube, commander, Naval Inventory Control Point in Philadelphia, which procures, manages, and


supplies spare parts for naval aircraft, submarines and ships worldwide. “By meeting the Navy’s rigorous on-time parts delivery requirements, MHSCo has set a high standard of sup- port that has had a very positive effect on H-60 flight opera- tions.”


“Over the past seven years, MHSCo has consistently exceed- ed contract requirements, and enhanced the customer’s fleet


readiness, by improving the availability and reliability of H- 60 materiel and providing effec- tive inventory control and materiel obsolescence manage- ment,” said David Adler, presi- dent of Sikorsky Aerospace Services. “This follow-on con- tract will enable MHSCo to con- tinue to provide the maximum value and the highest service lev- els to the U.S. Government, the taxpayer and the warfighter.” ◆
