Science and technology supporting future Army aviation

¬†Research in several areas will mature new capabilities to make Future Vertical Lift possible.¬†¬† by Mr. Todd Turner and Mr. Matthew Simone In the future, Army aviation systems will need to operate in an anti-access and area denial (A2AD) contested airspace against adversaries that have advanced capabilities that constrain freedom of maneuver. To be effective in these environments, future aviation systems will need extended range, increased situational awareness and higher speed to maneuver into positions of advantage, survive and engage the adversary. There also will be a need for increased use of unmanned systems to penetrate this contested airspace. The investments in the air systems science and technology (S&T) portfolio […]
