As the successor of the HSS-2B anti-submarine helicopter, the SH-60J is a licensed modification of the U.S. Navy's SH-60B airframe. MHI is the primary contractor.
It was developed under the unique concept of operation under Japan's policy to combat anti-submarine·anti-ship warfare by uniting the fleet with helicopters. Its first flight was in 1987, with a total of 103 units manufactured, including the test model. (As of March 31, 2005)
