It is based on the SH-60 Seahawk, which is a navalized variant of the US Army's UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter. Besides SAR, the HH-60 is used for drug interdiction, cargo lift, and special operations. It was developed for the United States Coast Guard to replace the aging Sikorsky Aircraft HH-3F Pelican in 1986.

Design and development

The HH-60J Jayhawk development began in 1986 based on the HH-60H Rescue Hawk airframe. The Jayhawks were delivered to the US Coast Guard in the early 1990s. The HH-60J has a radar for search/weather that gives its nose a distinctive look. A forward-looking infared (FLIR) sensor turret can be mounted below its nose. It can carry three 120 US gal (454 l) fuel tanks with two on the port side rack and one on the starboard side rack. The starboard also carries a rescue hoist with a 600 lbf (2.67 kN) capability mounted above the door. The hoist has 200 ft (61.0 m) of cable.

The Jayhawk has a 6,460 lb (2,930 kg) fuel capacity allows it to operate for 6.5 hours within a 300 nmi (556 km) radius. The helicopter is not able to perform water landings as was its amphibious HH-3F Pelican predecessor.

A total of 42 Jayhawks were built by Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation with 35 in operation and another 7 in storage or support roles.

The HH-60Js began an upgrade program to convert them to medium range responder helicopters in January 2007, and will be redesignated as MH-60T. The program, called Deepwater Program will provide a glass cockpit and other upgrades. The MH-60T is modified with an airborne use of force package, including weapons for firing warning and disabling shots, and armor to protect the aircrew from small arms fire.

Manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft Division of United Technologies in Stratford, 42 medium-range Jayhawk HH-60J helicopters are operating in the Coast Guard. With its twin T700-GE-401C engines, the Jayhawk can fly up to 300 miles offshore, remain on scene 45 minutes, hoist six people on board, and return to its point of origin with a safe fuel reserve. The H-60 will fly comfortably at 140 knots for sixto seven hours. Though normally stationed ashore, the Jayhawk can be carried aboard 270-foot WMEC and 378-foot WHEC Coast Guard cutters. The Jayhawk's state-of-the art radar, radio, and navigation equipment enables the helicopter to carry out the CoastGuard's search and rescue, law enforcement, military readiness and marine environmental protection missions efficiently and effectively.
