Lockheed Martin to Create New Software for MH-60R/S Helicopters

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) picked up a $10 million contract from the Navy to produce software that will provide MH-60R and MH-60S multi-mission helicopter aircrews the ability to preplan missions, leading to a greater chance of success.

“The MH-60 module will give Navy SEAHAWK pilots access to the military’s most advanced mission planning tool, allowing pilots to easily capture and load pre-planned data in a format compatible between both helicopter types, ” said George Barton, director of Lockheed Martin naval helicopter programs. “Once airborne, the aircraft’s avionics will know what mission to prosecute, the intended route and navigation waypoints to use, the communications frequencies, weapons and, sensors it will employ, as well as  other critical information.”
