Northrop Grumman, AgustaWestland team up for helicopter programs

  • 09-Oct-2012 05:03 EDT

Northrop Grumman Corp. and AgustaWestland signed a comprehensive teaming agreement to respond to anticipated requests for both the new U.S. Air Force Combat Rescue Helicopter and the U.S. Navy's program to develop a new "Marine One" presidential helicopter. A U.S.-built helicopter based on the AW101 platform will be offered by Northrop Grumman to meet these requirements. The agreement pairs Northrop Grumman's management and systems integration expertise with AgustaWestland's rotorcraft manufacturing and advanced helicopter design and development. The AW101 system offers both programs an optimum mix of capability to successfully bring the best possible new combat rescue helicopter to the USAF and the best possible new presidential Helicopter to the Navy-Marine Corps team.
