The MH-60R Seahawk helicopter is designed primarily for anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare. Secondary missions include search and rescue, vertical replenishment, naval surface fire support, logistics support, personnel transport, medical evacuation, and communications and data relay.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Terma A/S have agreed to explore potential collaborations if the Danish government decides to procure Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk helicopters. The government is currently evaluating aircraft for a replacement maritime helicopter. Terma's experience with the production of advanced aerostructures and electronic warfare equipment made it an attractive partner for Sikorsky, the builder of the multimission MH-60R helicopter, with mission systems integration assistance from Lockheed Martin.
