HUMS Contract to Improve Coast Guard Rescue Flights' Safety

Honeywell recently announced it has been awarded the $4.8 million contract to install the health and usage monitoring systems in all 42 of the U.S. Coast Guard's MH-60T helicopters.

Honeywell has been awarded a $4.8 million contract to install health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS) on all 42 MH-60T medium-range rescue helicopters operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. The installation of Honeywell's Zing® HUMS 1239 greatly increases the U.S. Coast Guard's ability to complete its mission and will help to reduce maintenance costs, according to the company.

HUMS is a sensor-based monitoring system that enables preventative maintenance by measuring the health and performance of mission-critical components. By continuously monitoring vibration at numerous points throughout the drivetrain and pinpointing mechanical faults before they become catastrophic failures, HUMS provides actionable information that allows the Coast Guard to anticipate mechanical failures and make anticipatory maintenance decisions.

The Coast Guard has an ongoing project to upgrade the fleet with new avionics, communications, navigation equipment, and flight instruments. This work converts them to MH-60Ts and will dramatically improved reliability and mission performance. The MH-60Ts have a top speed of 170 knots and a range of 300 nautical miles. They carry a crew of four. The helicopters will remain in service through 2027, according to the upgrade project's website, http://www.uscg.mil/acquisition/mrr/.
