Kaman Corp. (Nasdaq: KAMN) said that it has been notified by the recently elected government of the Commonwealth of Australia that it wishes to initiate a negotiation with Kaman to end the Super Seasprite program on mutually agreed terms. Responding to this overture, Neal J. Keating, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Kaman Corp., said, "We have received a communication from the Commonwealth that we are reviewing at this time with the expectation that we will enter a constructive process with the Commonwealth in order to arrive at a mutually agreeable conclusion to the Seasprite program. Although we have created a highly capable aircraft for the Royal Australian Navy and continue to fulfill our obligations to the Commonwealth under our contract, we appreciate the thoughtful approach and time invested by the current Government in addressing our program and we will work with them toward arriving at a satisfactory arrangement. " Kaman Corp. conducts business in the aerospace and industrial distribution markets. The SH-2G Super Seasprite was the first helicopter qualified with the Kaman Magic Lantern airborne laser mine detection system. In 1996, the US Navy took delivery of the Kaman Magic Lantern laser mine detection system which was fitted on the Super Seasprite for airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) missions. The Magic Lantern pod uses a blue-green laser and charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras to sweep the ocean from the surface to below the keel depth of warships. Magic Lantern provides mine classification symbology and video imagery on the existing ASN-1 50 displays. New Zealand purchased five SH-2Gs at the same time as Australia, but with different avionics. The New Zealand aircraft were new-build airframes. The SH-2G purchase was completed at NZ$12 million under the $338 million budgeted (excluding GST). The first RNZN SH-2G was delivered in mid-2001, and the last was delivered February 2003. The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) operates the type from its two Anzac class frigates, two Protector class offshore patrol vessels, and HMNZS Canterbury Multi Role vessel. They were initially operated by the Naval Support Flight of No. 3 Squadron RNZAF, but now from No. 6 Squadron RNZAF. However, the Seasprites are crewed by a Navy Pilot, TACCO and a Helicopter Crewman.
