The agreement follows the Danish Government’s June 2009 authorization to procure new ship-based helicopters to support Royal Danish Navy vessels operating in the North Atlantic and internationally. The MH-60R airframe is designed and built by Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., with mission systems integration by Lockheed Martin.
