The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a nearly $12 million contract to Virginia-based Science Applications International Corp. for work to be performed in Indiana. The contract calls for MH-60 helicopter weapon systems support and sustainment for the U.S. Navy and several foreign governments.

Three quarters of the work will be performed in Indianapolis with the remainder being performed in Crane. Work is expected to be complete by December 2021.

The DOD says the MH-60 weapon systems consist of the MH-60R and the MH-60S helicopters.The contract combines purchases for the Navy and the governments of Denmark, Australia and Saudi Arabia.

"The MH-60R is the Navy’s primary anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare platform and the most advanced maritime multi-mission helicopter in operation and deployed globally today. The MH-60S is the Navy’s maritime workhorse, and safely and reliably performs missions from vertical replenishment to Medevac," said the DOD.

The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division is the contracting activity.
