AMRDEC’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 (PVI) to the UH-60M, meets Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) requirements, and addresses obsolescence issues. First flight of the prototype aircraft occurred Jan 19, 2017.
Importance to the Army
The open architecture-based cockpit design replaces analog gauges with digital multifunctional displays and enhances situational awareness for aviation Warfighters.
The UH-60V features one of the Army's most advanced avionics solutions.
