Lockheed Martin has won a $382 million United States Navy contract to supply eight MH-60R aircraft.

The contract also involves providing associated systems engineering and program management support, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The MH-60R Seahawk multi-mission naval helicopter, also called ‘Romeo’, is intended to carry out a range of missions, including anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW), surveillance, communications relay, search and rescue (SAR), naval gunfire support (NGFS), personnel transport, vertical replenishment (VERTREP) and logistics support. It can be launched from aircraft carriers destroyers, cruise ships, frigates and amphibious ships.

Work is expected to be complete by September 2020.
