Sikorsky dubs the MH-60R model as the world's most capable naval helicopter available today designed to operate from frigates, destroyers, cruisers, and aircraft carriers.

The U.S. Navy awarded Lockheed Martin a $1.05 billion, five-year contract to provide more than 200 digital cockpits and integrated mission systems and sensors for the Navy MH-60R "Romeo" and MH-60S "Sierra" helicopters. The contract includes 162 cockpits, integrated missions systems, and sensors for MH-60R "Romeo," an anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare helicopter. It also funds 62 digital cockpits to complete the Navy's program of record for Sierra aircraft, used for ship-to-ship cargo resupply, search and rescue, and close-in defense of Navy ships. Lockheed Martin provides the digital cockpit common to the MH-60R and MH-60S and integrates the mission systems and sensors aboard the MH-60R helicopter in Owego, NY. Both aircraft are designed and manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft, Stratford, CT.
