The U.S. Navy's MH-60R multimission helicopter can collect and stream situational awareness data to the host ship via C-band data link and can collaborate with air assets via Link 16.

Naval Air Systems Command and Defense Logistics Agency Aviation Strategic Acquisition awarded Raytheon Co. two contracts totaling $115.7 million for the AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar (ALFS), the primary undersea warfare sensor for the U.S. Navy's MH-60R multimission helicopter. ALFS provides critical undersea warfare mission support capabilities, including submarine detection, tracking, localization, classification, acoustic intercept, underwater communication, and environmental data collection. Under the first contract, valued at $59.7 million, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will manufacture, integrate, test, and deliver ALFS systems. The company will also provide data and weapons replaceable assemblies for systems under test as well as helicopter maintenance trainer assets. The second contract, for $56 million, provides for spares for fleet-deployed systems.
