The segment has contracted with Boeing to produce the wing control surfaces (inboard and outboard flaps, slats and deceleron assemblies) for the U.S. Air Force's A-10 fleet. This contract has a potential value of over $110.0 million; however, annual quantities will vary, as they are dependent upon the orders Boeing receives from the U.S. Air Force. Initial deliveries under this program began in the third quarter of 2010; however, our customer's scheduling has changed and the timing of deliveries has shifted. We expect full rate production for this program to begin in the fourth quarter of 2012, with an average of approximately 50 ship sets being delivered per year thereafter.
Our bearings products are included on military platforms manufactured in North America and Europe. These products are used as original equipment and/or specified as replacement parts by the manufacturers. The most significant portion of our military sales is derived from U.S. military platforms, such as the AH-64, C-17 and F/A-18 aircraft, and sales in Europe for the Typhoon program. These products are primarily proprietary self-lubricating, ball and roller bearings for aircraft flight controls, turbine engines, and landing gear and driveline couplings for helicopters.
The Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter cockpit program involves the manufacture of cockpits including the installation of all wiring harnesses, hydraulic assemblies, control pedals and sticks, seat tracks, pneumatic lines, and the composite structure that holds the windscreen for most models of the BLACK HAWK helicopter. We are currently in the process of negotiating the next option under this program, which will allow us to continue to perform work under this program through 2017. Orders placed to date for the program will allow us to continue deliveries into 2012.
The segment also performs additional subcontract work involving blade erosion coating.
The segment continues production of structural wing subassemblies for the Boeing C-17. We received additional orders under this program that will extend our work beyond 2012. During 2011, we delivered 12 ship sets. We currently have orders for 18 ship sets to be delivered in 2012 and beyond.
The segment continues work under a program for depot level maintenance and upgrades for nine Kaman SH-2G(E) helicopters originally delivered to the Egyptian government during the 1990s. This program has a total contract value of approximately $81.0 million and, as of December 31, 2011, is fully funded.
We manufacture the JPF, an electro-mechanical bomb safe and arming device, which allows the settings of a weapon to be programmed in flight. During 2009, we entered into a contract modification with the USG for the award of Options 6, 7 and 8 under our multi-option JPF contract. During the first quarter, we were awarded a $23.8 million JPF order from the United States Air Force ("USAF") for fuzes to be delivered in 2012 and 2013 under Option 8 of the program. During the second quarter, we were awarded an additional $23.7 million order from the USAF under Option 8 of our JPF program and a commercial JPF foreign military order of $3.1 million. Total JPF backlog at December 31, 2011, is $125.0 million. During the first quarter of 2012, we were awarded an additional $24.2 million order from the USAF under Option 8.
At various times during 2011, we experienced issues during acceptance testing of fuzes produced for our JPF program that caused us to suspend deliveries multiple times. The acceptance testing failures resulted from issues with test equipment and testing procedures, as well as an isolated component failure. Despite these issues we were able to deliver approximately 3,700 units during the fourth quarter before having to halt deliveries again. In cooperation with our customer, we analyzed, tested and verified the root causes of these acceptance testing failures and developed a plan to remediate the issues. As a result we resumed acceptance testing in January.
The recent JPF competitive source selection by the U.S. Government has transitioned into a sole source negotiation between us and the USAF. Based on the time needed for the U.S. Government to audit our proposal, and for contract negotiations to be completed, contract award is not expected until mid-2012.
The Sikorsky Canadian MH-92 helicopter program includes the manufacture and assembly of composite tail rotor pylons. This program has undergone numerous customer directed design changes that caused costs on this program to exceed the originally proposed price for the contract. During 2010, we finalized contract price negotiations for this program increasing the contract value from $6.0 million to approximately $11.0 million. Although we received additional consideration for this contract we were not able to recover all the anticipated cost growth and because the price was less than anticipated we recorded a $2.0 million contract loss during the third quarter of 2010. To date, we have recorded $6.8 million in contract losses, and of this amount, $3.3 million was recorded in 2010. No such charges were recorded in 2011.
In December 2009, we signed a $6.7 million contract with the U.S. Army to perform blade erosion coating on helicopter blades. Initial deliveries began in the first quarter of 2010 and as of December 31, 2011 we have completed deliveries under this contract. Under all blade erosion coating contracts with the U.S. Army, we delivered 668 blades through December 31, 2011. Although this program is complete, we will continue to perform blade erosion coating for helicopter blades for Sikorsky, which may include additional blades for the U.S. Army.
