Lockheed Martin unveiled a European-built Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter at the Farnborough International Airshow, showcasing the types of weapons that can be integrated onto the multirole aircraft.
Armed external wings on either side of the displayed aircraft feature a total of four weapons stations, with launchers for a mix of air-to-ground missiles, a 19-shot Hydra-70 rocket pod, and an FN HERSTAL Belgium manufactured rocket machine gun pod.
For laser designating of a future weapons system as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, the aircraft's cockpit chin features Lockheed Martin's INFIRNO sensor system. Now a Lockheed Martin company, Sikorsky can configure an armed helicopter to the specific preferences of current and future customers.
Lockheed Martin's INFIRNO sensor system recently completed its first flight on an H-60 BLACK HAWK helicopter. This successful Lockheed Martin-funded test validated INFIRNO's ability to detect, identify and track targets from an airborne platform
Lockheed Martin is exploring options to bring its weapons integration expertise to bear on the European-built S-70 BLACK HAWK helicopters made by Sikorsky. The goal is to produce an armed kit scalable to the requirements of customers that procure International BLACK HAWK aircraft direct from Lockheed Martin, the company said in a statement Wednesday
