Common Cockpit Countdown

As the hub of all activity aboard the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R “Romeo” and MH-60S “Sierra” aircraft, the Lockheed Martin-developed Common Cockpit provides critical information to the crews that fly the helicopters every day.

Recently, the Lockheed Martin team in Owego, N.Y., delivered the 500th Common Cockpit. The cockpit consists of several components built by Lockheed Martin, including the two kinds of cockpit displays and multiple flight computers.  

“We are very proud to have reached this milestone and are honored to be the provider of this capability to our U.S. Navy, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Danish Navy partners,” said Tom Kane, director of Naval Helicopter Programs for Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training. “In addition to providing a common logistics footprint, the Common Cockpit continues to provide tremendous advantages to the fleet through increased situational awareness, improved subsystem reliability and reduced total cost of ownership.”

FIVE hundred Common Cockpits have been delivered to the U.S. Navy.


FOUR large, flat-panel, multi-function, night-vision-compatible, color displays comprise the Common Cockpit.

THREE crew members increase their situational awareness from communications and sensor data streaming into the MH-60 multi-mission helicopters.


TWO aircraft variants, the MH-60R and MH-60S, receive instant information on everything from weather to weapons and sensors.

ONE common system reduces operator workload, logistics footprint and total cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy.
