AUSA 2016: Northrop Grumman Touts UH-60V BLACK HAWK Cockpit Digitisation Upgrade Solution

Northrop Grumman is the digital cockpit supplier and integrator for the US Armys UH-60V programme, which replaces analogue gauges in UH-60L helicopters with electronic instrument displays. The upgraded helicopter will replicate the UH-60M pilot-vehicle interface and provide interoperability. Northrop Grummans solution extends the life and mission capabilities of the UH-60 platform.

Additional benefits of Northrop Grummans 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.

The companys approach for the design and implementation of the UH-60V integrated mission equipment package is based on its experience with similar upgrades for the US Marine Corps AH-1Z and UH-1Y helicopters and US Navy E-2D Advanced HAWKEYE programmes.
