Kaman Aerospace Group has received a follow-on contract award for the HH-60W Combat Rescue Helicopter (CRH) cockpit. This award secures deliveries of the HH-60W cockpit from 2022 through 2025.
Awarded by Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, the contract is part of a key U.S. Air Force (USAF) program.
The Kaman Aerospace Jacksonville Division in Florida will support the contract works using the existing workforce of highly skilled engineers, technicians, assemblers, and support personnel in Jacksonville.
The HH-60W helicopter is designed to support a full range of combat rescue and other special missions of the USAF. According to Lockheed Martin, the HH-60W will replace the ageing HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters.
“Kaman is excited to continue to support this vital U.S. Air Force Program,” said William Zmyndak, Vice President/General Manager of Kaman Aerospace Jacksonville. “Kaman is committed to delivering a quality product to the CRH program and appreciates the opportunity to sustain a strong supplier relationship with Sikorsky.”
Kaman Aerospace Jacksonville is a leading supplier of complex aircraft structures and sub-assemblies, as well as sheet metal details, extruded parts and machined components for the commercial and defense aerospace industries.
