UH-60V Black Hawk
One Helo. Many Missions.
Northrop Grumman provides the Integrated Avionics Suite for the UH-60V, which modernizes the U.S. Army’s UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters with a digital, open architecture integrated glass cockpit, including an integrated computational system, visual display system and Control Display Units. This replaces the analog gauges in UH-60L helicopters with an integrated system that provides one of the most advanced avionics systems in the U.S. Army. Our solution extends the life and mission capabilities of the UH-60 platform.
Modular Open Systems Approach
Our modular open systems architecture (MOSA) enhances how new capabilities are acquired and delivered to the Warfighter. With open architecture systems, agencies are free to work with multiple developers to upgrade capabilities. These systems drive competition and enable upgrade regardless of developer, increasing acquisition speed and broadening opportunity for updates during a system’s life.
Integrated Mission Equipment Package
Additional benefits of Northrop Grumman’s open and scalable, fully integrated mission equipment package include enhanced pilot situational awareness and mission safety, decreased workload and life cycle cost, and a common training environment.
Proven Experience in Helicopter Upgrades
Our approach for the design and implementation of the UH-60V integrated mission equipment package is based on our experience with similar upgrades for the U.S. Marine Corps AH-1Z and UH-1Y helicopters, U.S. Navy E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, and the Royal Jordanian Air Force AH-1 programs.
