EVC to build Carriage, Stream, Tow, and Recovery System for MH-60S

  • 29-May-2012 04:05 EDT

The Naval Surface Warfare Center–Panama City Division (NSWC-PCD) awarded Enterprise Ventures Corp. (EVC) a $12.5 million contract to build the U.S. Navy Carriage, Stream, Tow, and Recovery System (CSTRS) for the MH-60S helicopter. The CSTRS provides the multimission MH-60S helicopter with the wide minesweeping capability by making Organic Airborne Mine Countermeasures Systems deployable from fleet assets in dangerous waters. CSTRS will enable the U.S. Navy's new littoral combat ships to readily respond to mine threats, providing an extra measure of safety for crew and ships. In addition, the CSTRS design is modular and is capable of supporting the deployment requirement of multiple mine sensors that provide a range of mine countermeasures objectives.
