14 NEW HORIZONS
Whether it is fixing obsolescence issues, preventing capability gaps or strengthening efficiency, legacy upgrades are continually in motion across the military helicopter industry.
Shephard casts an eye over the major projects currently shaped by army aviation and naval operators, including key updates on the UK Merlin Mk4/4A, USMC H-1 and US Army UH-60V programmes.
18 RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
The growing global market for long-range, all-weather CSAR rotorcraft reflects the fact that this capability is now widely considered essential for the conduct of most military operations, particularly aerial and special operations campaigns in denied territory.
23 MIND OVER MATTER
Augmented reality is a fast-growing focus in the military helicopter sector, with the technology viewed as holding particular potential for supporting pilot and crew training and providing assistance in DVE, according to industry experts.
28 WEAPONS OF CHOICE
Military helicopters are a pressing requisite for India’s military, which has projected a future fleet of over 900 combat, attack and light utility models. Given its current ageing inventory, the new generation of rotorcraft on order for the Indian armed forces will offer superior avionics, range, speed, propulsion, survivability and highaltitude performance. Shephard investigates the advanced weaponisation of these platforms.
32 BY POPULAR DEMAND
Lord Corporation has seen growing demand for its motion, noise and vibration control products in recent decades. Ed Auslander, president and CEO of the company, spoke to Shephard about Lord’s participation in current defence helicopter programmes and its plans for the future.
