High-Performance Maritime Helicopter
The SH-2G Super Seasprite is an advanced integrated maritime weapon system available today.
The SH-2G Super Seasprite is a proven day/night/all-weather multi-mission helicopter. Designed to meet the exacting requirements of the U.S. Navy, the SH-2G Super Seasprite has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any maritime helicopter, assuring a safe return-to-ship capability even in single-engine flight conditions. Its robust design, outstanding stability, excellent reliability, and proven capability (more than 1.5 million flight hours) are important benefits in the demanding maritime environment.
The SH-2G is a fully integrated, multi-mission maritime weapon system designed to fulfill anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW), over the horizon targeting, surveillance, troop transport, vertical replenishment, search and rescue, and utility missions.
It is also the largest, most powerful small ship helicopter on the market today and is recognized for its mission effectiveness, support, and unmatched performance. In 1997 Kaman delivered its first international SH-2G Super Seasprite to the Arab Republic of Egypt. Today the SH-2G Super Seasprite is operated in Egypt, Poland, and New Zealand.
