Under a contract awarded to Honeywell Technology Solutions, the monitoring ability of both the ship and helicopter through radar and sonar will be extended. Shown is a U.S. Navy SH-60F Sea Hawk.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) awarded Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc. (HTSI) a $51 million, five-year contract to provide design, development, integration, testing, evaluation, maintenance, and logistics support for the Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS), the shipboard element of a two-way digital data link between a U.S. Navy ship and an SH-60 helicopter. In addition to providing engineering support for the equipment production and upgrade, HTSI provides support to the fleet around the world for maintenance, testing, and repair. Honeywell began serving the Navy for the LAMPS system in 1982.
