Science Applications International Corp. has won an $11.8 million contract to provide weapon systems support and sustainment to the Navy’s MH-60 helicopters.
The MH-60 weapon systems consist of the MH-60R and the MH-60S helicopters.
The MH-60R is the Navy’s primary anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare platform, and the MH-60S is the Navy's maritime workhorse, performing missions from vertical replenishment to Medevac, the Defense Department said in a release.
This contract includes foreign military sales to the governments of Denmark, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil.
Work will be performed primarily in Indiana and is slated to wrap up in September 2017.
