Issue 68 - June 2016

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) announced on May 2, 2016, the successful execution of the Combat Rescue Helicopter Program (CRH) Air Vehicle Preliminary Design Review (PDR). This important review signals that the CRH program is proceeding with detailed design activities for the HH-60W Air Vehicle and Logistics system.  In addition, the team will continue toward the CRH Training Systems Preliminary Design Review in August, three months ahead of schedule.

Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, and the United States Air Force (USAF) hosted a five-day meeting in April to gather stakeholders and key collaborators from government and industry for an in-depth review that demonstrated that the overall design meets the systems requirements setting the stage for the next phase of the program.  Review participants included members of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, both the USAF acquisition team and representatives of the USAF operational combat rescue community, as well as the Sikorsky and Lockheed Martin industry team and several other key suppliers.
