Everything you need to know about International Military Helicopter USA's second online day!
This session will focus on outlining the need for integration of effective maintenance protocol within the design of FVL craft. It will provide an inside look at how FVL maintenance procedures should be dictated during development to better serve helicopter platforms and increase their longevity and flexibility.
The Director of the Future Vertical Lift Cross Functional Team will discuss how collaboration is driving the latest developments in FVL for delivering improved lethality, reach and survivability capabilities to support the operational environment and respond effectively to threats in the field. This includes topics such as the integration of UAS (supplementary fixed wing craft; incorporated payloads with air launched effects) and the continued automation of sensors, avionics systems and targeting and weapons systems.
This session will focus on the needs and mission sets for future rotary aircraft in Israel. This session will discuss:
· US partnerships on FVL development
· Challenges for acquisition and maintenance – is rotorcraft update necessary?
· unique elements for in rotary operations in Israel, such as weather, terrain, survivability and mobility
This session will begin with an overview of the Dutch Helicopter Command and ongoing developments for the DHC, including funded plans and major drivers for change. The main focus of the presentation will be understanding the multi-domain needs for future helicopter operations across the Netherlands unique geography.
Australia presents a unique battlespace for rotary operations, and are consistently one of the leaders in the rotary aircraft development space. This panel will discuss the challenges for their military in the next generation of development, particularly on the needs for future acquisition of FVL rotary aircraft from the United States.
The V-22 Osprey program has marked a revolutionary shift in helicopter design since the aircraft’s inception in 1989, and its designs, operational capacity and procurement history can serve as a model for FVL development. This session will focus on a rundown of the latest on the V-22 program and provide lessons learned for rotary aircraft development and acquisition moving forward.
