Lock­heed Martin looks at adapt­able weapons kit for Black Hawk

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

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, a Lock­heed Martin Com­pany. The goal is to pro­duce an armed kit scal­able to the re­quire­ments of cus­tomers that pro­cure In­ter­na­tional Black Hawk air­craft di­rect from Lock­heed Martin.

Last year’s ac­qui­si­tion of Siko­rsky by Lock­heed Martin has widened the aper­ture of pos­si­bil­i­ties for arm­ing the Black Hawk he­li­copter,” said Bill Gos­tic, Vice Pres­i­dent, Siko­rsky Global Mil­i­tary Sys­tems & Ser­vices. “Lock­heed Martin brings in­te­gra­tion ex­per­tise that will al­low us to cus­tomise an armed con­fig­u­ra­tion – for de­fen­sive or of­fen­sive op­er­a­tions – to the spe­cific pref­er­ences of cur­rent and fu­ture Black Hawk cus­tomers, and with weapons of their choice.”
