Kaman can bid it. I'd bet against it. Kaman's not done a lot of large military contracts and that would put the program at risk for the manufacturing phase.

The SH-2 Seasprite helicopter comes to mind. I worked for them on the C-5B wing flap and the A-6 flap and slats projects in the 80's
The K-Max has been flying cargo resupply for the Army in Afghanistan and they have an autonomous version. The tandem rotor negates the need for a tail rotor. Lockheed-Martin were on board for this.

When was the last sprite?

Lockheed also bought Sikorsky...sooo...I'd bet they're going to go with whatever comes from there.

They were replacing them with SH-60Bs in the mid 80's. The H-2s were a good platform for the original intent, but, mission creep caught up with them.
