US Airframer Lockheed Martin is participating at the ongoing ADEX, with the hope that emerging opportunities in South Korea, will materialise into real deals.
Having delivered on a wide array of programs such as F-35 Lightning II, F-16 Fighting Falcon, T-50 Golden Eagle and FPS 117, the company says that it looks forward to supporting the US Navy’s Foreign Military Sale proposal of 12 MH-60R’s to the Republic of Korea Navy.
“The FMS procurement of the MH-60R “Romeo” would expeditiously provide the Republic of Korea Navy with the world’s most advanced anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare rotary-winged aircraft in the world, while also enhancing its capability in performing vital search search-and-rescue missions,” a company spokesperson tells Daily News, while declining to provide specifics on the status of the Maritime Operational Helicopter procurement by the South Korean Navy.
A few examples of partnership with Korea include: Lockheed Martin and Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) co-production of F-16 and the T-50 Golden Eagle; partnership with Samsung Data Systems to modernize Korea’s air traffic management system with the Korean Area Control Center (kAA) and a partnership with Korea Telecom, where several communication satellites have been successfully produced.
