Northrop Grumman and AgustaWestland Announce Teaming Agreement to Compete for both the Air Force Combat Rescue Helicopter and the Navy “Marine One” Presidential Helicopter Programs


AgustaWestland, September 18, 2012 - Northrop Grumman Corporation and AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company announced today that they have signed a comprehensive teaming agreement to respond to anticipated requests for both the new Air Force Combat Rescue Helicopter and the Navy’s recently announced program to develop a new “Marine One” Presidential Helicopter.

A US built helicopter based on the AW101 platform will be offered by Northrop Grumman to meet these requirements.

The teaming of Northrop Grumman’s proven management and systems integration expertise with AgustaWestland’s world-renowned rotorcraft manufacturing and advanced helicopter design/development, offers both programs an optimum mix of capability to successfully bring the best possible new combat rescue helicopter to the Air Force and the best possible new Presidential helicopter to the Navy-Marine Corps team.

Northrop Grumman’s successes in managing the development of complex air systems are unequaled—from fully autonomous strategic unmanned systems like the Fire Scout, to the E-2D Hawkeye, the B-2 bomber and the E-8 Joint Stars.

Couple that with the continuous investment in rotorcraft technology development AgustaWestland has made to field the world’s most advanced, rugged and reliable helicopters, and both the Air Force and the Navy will receive and field the best possible affordable systems.
