Description: The Sikorsky H-92/S-92 is a medium-lift helicopter based upon the combat proven Black Hawk. It has been designed to meet the needs of military and commercial customers in all-weather conditions featuring a larger cabin, a more survivable design and enhanced range. An aft ramp was provided for easy loading and unloading of troops and cargo. In addition, the H/S-92 helicopter can be outfitted with a wide range of equipment (FLIR, radar, etc.) to fulfill a wide range of mission requirements.

The H-92 Superhawk is available for export as a multi-role helicopter due to its mission flexibility. The low operating costs achieved in the H-92 design make it suitable to many customers. The H-92 version available for the civil market is known as the S-92. The Canadian H-92s will perform anti-submarine patrols, surveillance and ship-borne duties, search and rescue support, cargo and personnel transport, and disaster relief support. On November 23, 2004, Sikorsky and the government of Canada signed a CAD$5 billion ($3.85 billion) contract to provide and maintain 28 H-92 maritime multi-mission helicopters with deliveries scheduled to begin in late 2008.

In April 2005, Sikorsky Aircraft and the Canadian government inaugurated a new Canadian Maritime Helicopter Project (MHP) office located at Sikorsky's main manufacturing facility in Stratford, Connecticut. The new 25,000 square-foot space included a 5,000 square-foot secure area to accommodate a detachment of 17 Canadian government employees overseeing the project. The H-92 helicopter was designated the CH-148 Cyclone by the Canadian Forces. First flight was expected in November 2007 and deliveries shall began one year later. In April 2006 BAE Systems was awarded a $10.4 million contract to provide 31 AN/ALQ-144A(V)5 countermeasures system for Canada's CH-148 Cyclone helicopter. These countermeasures systems are meant to protect CH-148s from infrared guided surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles. The contract was awarded by General Dynamics Canada which takes care of the ALQ-144s integration into Cyclones.

In December 2005 Sikorsky announced that the military variant of the medium-lift S-92 helicopter was re-designated the MH-92 replacing its previous H-92 designation. The MH-92 was scheduled to test new avionics and fly-by-wire controls to be ultimately deployed with the Canadian Forces CH-148 Cyclone. The HH-92 is an H-92 variant offered for the US Air Force CSAR-X program. CSAR-X pursues a replacement for the HH-60G Pave Hawk combat search and rescue aircraft.
