The Department of Defense announced the deal on September 9, 2020.
The full contracting announcement from the Pentagon is as follows:
“Moog Inc., Elma, New York, was awarded a $46,659,837 firm-fixed-price contract to overhaul and upgrade cylinder assembly actuators for UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters. Bids were solicited via the internet with one received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 9, 2024.

Moog has been an innovator in the motion control industry since the early 1950’s.
