Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a Lockheed Martin Co., Stratford, Connecticut, is awarded an $11,775,696 modification (P00003) to a cost-plus-fixed-fee order (N0001921F0109) against a previously issued basic ordering agreement (N0001919G0029). This modification adds scope to provide non-recurring engineering analysis in support of Federal Aviation Administration airworthiness certification efforts to enable VH-92A shipboard operations.

Work will be performed in Stratford, Connecticut (63%); West Palm Beach, Florida (27%); Coatsville, Pennsylvania (5%); Owego, New York (4%); and Trumbull, Connecticut (1%), and is expected to be completed in October 2023. Fiscal 2021 research, development, test and evaluation (Navy) funds in the amount of $5,825,645 will be obligated at the time of award, all of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
