Step Right this Way for a Tour of the MH-60R

U.S. Navy Commander provides an up close look at the centerpiece of the Navy’s 21st century helicopter fleet

The MH-60R multi-purpose helicopter, also known as the Romeo, provides the U.S. Navy with the latest anti-submarine (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) capabilities. The centerpiece for the Navy’s 21st-century helicopter master plan, the MH-60R is the world's only advanced ASW/ASuW weapon system operational today with fully certified capability and more than 50,000 flight hours to date.

As mission systems integrator for the MH-60R, Lockheed Martin is responsible for integrating the helicopter’s digital cockpit, multi-mode radar, acoustic sonar suite, long-range infrared camera and other advanced sensors. Sikorsky Aircraft designs and manufactures the MH-60R.

During the recent Avalon Air Show in Australia, Navy LCDR Ross "JR" Drenning of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM-77) discussed the MH-60R’s capabilities while on board the USS Shoup. Click on the video below to learn more about the MH-60R.
