Sikorsky selected Eaton to design, develop, and supply the integrated fuel system for its new military heavy-lift helicopter, the CH-53K. Eaton was also recently issued a contract for the hydraulic power generation system and fluid conveyance package. During the development phase of the program, which runs through 2014, Eaton will provide the integrated fuel system support hardware for five helicopter shipsets in addition to a number of system development test sets. Based on expected production of more than 156 helicopters for the U.S. Marine Corps, the contract is valued at $96 million. Foreign military sales, however, could bring the value to more than $160 million over the 12-year life of the program.
