The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center’s Prototype Integration Facility assisted the Utility Helicopter Project Management Office in developing and qualifying the UH-60V aircraft. The UH-60V features a digital cockpit that updates the legacy analog gauges. This achieves a similar pilot vehicle interface to the UH-60M, meets Global Air Traffic Management requirements, and addresses obsolescence issues. First flight of the prototype aircraft occurred Jan 19, 2017.
Key members of the Redstone Team include PEO Aviation Utility Helicopters Project Office, the Redstone Test Center, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, and CCDC Aviation & Missile Center. AvMC, as the system integrator, teamed with industry partners to meet the critical program schedule.
Importance to the Army
The open architecture-based cockpit design replaces analog gauges with digital multi-functional displays and enhances situational awareness for aviation Warfighters. The UH-60V features one of the Army's most advanced avionics solutions.
