Northrop Grumman will improve the capabilities of the UH-60V aircraft
Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected to provide engineering services for the $156.7 million, KBR-led, five-year Multi-Contract Vehicle (MAC) Analysis Center of the information from the Department of Defense (DoD IAC).
IAC MAC Task Orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository and community of research and development (R&D) and science and technology (S&T) .
“We are exploring a broad range of capabilities that will allow the UH-60V to remain relevant in the multi-domain operations environment of the future,” said Lindsay McEwen, vice president, navigation, targeting and survivability, Northrop Grumman. “Our modular and open architecture approach allows for rapid integration of enhanced capabilities.”
The UH-60V is a complete digital cockpit redesign that replaces the analogue instrumentation inherited from the UH-60L with a fully open and integrated avionics suite. The UH-60V flight architecture applies to current fleet and future vertical lift aircraft, and is expandable to Apache, Black Hawk and Chinook aircraft.
The DoD IAC, sponsored by DTIC, provides technical data management and research support for DoD and federal government users. Established in 1946, the IAC program serves the DoD S&T and acquisition communities to drive innovation and technology developments by enhancing collaboration through the integrated development and dissemination of scientific and technical information for the DoD and the community. S&T in the broad sense.
