    The Kaman SH-2G Super Seasprite is the ideal multi-

    mission maritime helicopter. From anti-submarinewarfare, to anti-surface warfare, over-the-horizontargeting, utility and search and rescue you namethe missions, the SH-2G meets the challenge!

    Largest small-ship helicopterThe SH-2G is a ully integrated multi-

    mission maritime weapon system with

    anti-submarine, anti-surace, over-the-

    horizon targeting, surveillance, troop

    transport, search and rescue and utility

    capabilities. The aircrat is the largest, most

    powerul small ship helicopter available.

    With more than 1.3 million ight

    hours in an at-sea environment, the

    SH-2Gs robust design has proven itsel

    ully capable and compatible with opera-

    tions on todays OPVs, corvettes, rigatesand larger naval vessels. The aircrat is

    compatible with all leading deck securing

    and traversing systems. A proven perorm-

    er, the SH-2G Seasprite has more ree-deck

    experience in higher sea states than any

    other maritime helicopter. The SH-2G:

    the most experienced day/night/all-weath-

    er multi-mission maritime helicopter.

    Fully integratedNavigation, communications, surace warare and anti-sub-

    marine warare systems provide ast, accurate and dependable

    location and detection data to the on-board crew. The same data

    is available via burst transmission to adjacent ships or com-

    mand centers.

    A dual redundant MIL-STD-1553B data bus links the

    integrated crew with navigation, ight control sensors, mis-

    sion sensors, tactical processing, data links, stores managementand controls and displays. This combination o data bus and

    instrument package enables the aircrat and its systems to be

    efciently operated by a crew o two.

    Wide array of weapons systemsThe SH-2Gs specialty is over-the-horizon operations rom

    small ships Super Seasprite extends the reach o the ships

    sensors and weapons by a actor o 10! Delivering beyond-the-

    horizon reach and keeping the ship out o harms way the

    SH-2G is the ultimate maritime orce multiplier.

    On-board radar, FLIR, ESM and acoustic data processorenable the SH-2G to independently exhibit a wide array o

    surace and submarine contact data. Fully integrated weapons

    allow delivery o Penguin or Maverick air-to-surace missiles,

    advanced lightweight ASW torpedoes, and side suppression

    arms such as the 7.62 or 12.7 mm general-purpose machine

    gun. The SH-2G is designed and certifed to deliver the widest

    array o weapons.

    The SH-2G can carry two MK-46 torpedoes; two AGM-119

    Penguin or two AGM-65 Maverick air-to-surace missiles; two

    MK-11 depth charges; ares or sel-protection; 7.62 mm or

    12.7 mm door-mounted machine guns.

    Utility operations

    The ull versatility o the SH-2Gis demonstrated by its ability to

    serve many roles. It can carry up

    to eight ully equipped troops

    or serve as a platorm to observe

    and support naval gunfre op-

    erations. For search and rescue

    operations, the helicopter is

    equipped with a 600 lb (272 kg)

    capacity rescue hoist. For verti-

    cal replenishment, the SH-2G

    has a 4,000 lb (1814 kg) capac-ity external cargo hook.

    Because o the ease with

    which pilots y the SH-2G, it

    is an ideal helicopter or visit,

    board, and search and seizure

    operations.

    SH-2Gs full-time rescue hoist means the helicopter is always ready

    for urgent, in-ight re-tasking for critical SAR operations.

    Full-time, 600 lb capacity, rescue hoist.

    This Royal New Zealand SH-2G can carry an array of weaponry, including Maverick missiles, shown above.

    The SH-2G has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any helicopter in its class,

    delivering the best high-hot performance in the industry.

    Designed from the beginning for maritime operationsThe SH-2G Super Seasprite is optimized or small ship operations.

    The olding blade system enables storage and maintenance aboard.

    A ully marinized uselage and drive train is designed specifcally

    or maritime operations. The uselage has a 10,000-hour mini-mum lie beore major inspection.

    With twin-engine reliability, the aircrat has the highest power

    to weight ratio o any helicopter in its class. The Super Seasprite is

    capable o completing its designed mission on a single engine and

    returning saely to the ship.

    The ully articulated main rotor system, titanium hub and exclu-

    sive, highly reliable servo-ap control system ensures pilot-riendly,

    low vibration ight operations. Pilots, crew and aircrat systems enjoy

    low vibration levels, ensuring longer lie or components and reduced

    atigue or crew members, enabling maximum ocus on the mission.

    The Super Seasprites extremely low vibration levels are the standardothers can only hope to achieve. The aircrat maintains the best vibra-

    tion levels thanks to its unique in-ight blade tracking system.

    The SH-2G Super Seasprite features a comprehensive aircraft

    self-protection suite, above, and is at home at sea.
