The JMR Vision, From the Outside In

By Kris Osborn The Pentagon and the Army are in the early stages of a far-reaching science and technology (S&T) effort to engineer, build, and deliver a next-generation helicopter with vastly improved avionics, electronics, range, speed, propulsion, survivability, operating density altitudes, and payload capacity. In a series of five articles, Access AL&T looks in detail at what this program is intended to accomplish and how industry is contributing. The areas of science and technology (S&T) focus for the Joint Multi-Role (JMR) Technology Demonstrator program span a wide spectrum of emerging technologies, including composite materials, onboard electronics, and various rotor configurations designed to increase speed without compromising hovering ability, said Dave […]
