Delivering Rotary Capability Overmatch via Asset Modernization & FVL Acquisition

IDGA's 4th Annual International Military Helicopter USA Summit will provide a means to discuss the ongoing efforts to meet the next generation of innovative rotary winged assets to bolster air and battlefield overmatch. Continued rotary wing asset modernization, coupled with the US Future Vertical Lift (FVL) directive is driving helicopter capability development on a global scale, ushering in a new age of rotorcraft capability. 

Following Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, the DoD called for an inquiry into the US Armed Forces’ rotorcraft fleet’s capabilities, as it did not meet the Commander’s and Warfighter’s need for speed, range, automation, maintainability, among other critical capability sets. Emphasis had long been placed on modernizing and maintaining existing platforms, while emphasis on new platform development was not as high. However, the FVL directive aims to provide a new family of military helicopters, one that will ensure the United States’ dominance in the vertical lift domain throughout the 21st century and beyond.

The International Military Helicopter USA Summit will also provide an in-depth viewpoint as to the rotary wing capability development efforts of our NATO and allied partners. Join our summit for a senior-level understanding of the modernization and new platform development challenges experienced by our international partners in order to drive future collaborative initiatives for helicopter operations, capabilities, and programs.

Join IDGA’s 4th Annual International Military Helicopter USA Summit for the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with key leaders, international partners, solutions providers, and subject matter experts across the military helicopter community. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to network, share, and learn to drive the next generation of military helicopters!
