Lockheed Martin and Terma A/S are exploring the potential sale of the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R multimission helicopter to the Danish Government.

Lockheed Martin and Danish aerospace and defense company Terma A/S signed a memorandum of understanding to explore opportunities associated with the potential sale of the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R multimission helicopter to the Danish Government. 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.
