L-3's HELRAS is the highest performance helicopter dipping sonar in the world, featuring long range, deep and shallow water surveillance capability, even against stealthy diesel electric submarines.
We are delighted that Europe has chosen HELRAS for the four nation NH-90 Helicopter Program," said Frank C.
In addition to this award, HELRAS has also been chosen by Italy for the Agusta EH-101 helicopter and by Turkey and Greece for the Sikorsky S-70B helicopter.
HELRAS was selected as the basis of the SONICS system for the four-nation (France, Germany, Italy and The Netherlands) NH-90 helicopter.
This is the first contract award for our new, state-of-the-art HELRAS technology," said Steven T.
