Some 298 new MH-60R SEAHAWK® helicopters with a mix of sophisticated sensors are assuming the U.S. Navy's primary anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare roles of today's SH-60B and SH-60F aircraft. The MH-60R SEAHAWK helicopter elevates tactical maritime mission capability to a new level by building on six decades of Sikorsky's naval helicopter experience. The MH-60R model is the world's most capable naval helicopter available today designed to operate from frigates, destroyers, cruisers and aircraft carriers. Its state-of-the-art mission systems give it an unmatched capability as an airborne multi-mission naval platform. Additionally, the MH-60R aircraft enables modern navies worldwide to benefit from future decades of military interoperability with the U.S. Navy.

For the AMCM role, the US Navy is currently developing a range of new systems:

  • AN/AQS-20 side looking sonar
  • Acoustic/magnetic minesweeper
  • Airborne mine neutralisation (through remotely piloted anti-mine torpedoes)
  • Organic Airborne and Surface Influence Sweep (OASIS)
