Northrop Grumman has selected Thales to supply its state of the art Flight Management System software, i-FMS200, to be embedded in the avionics mission equipment package to upgrade the US Army’s UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters.

The upgraded version of the Black Hawk helicopter will be known as UH-60V.

Thales has been working closely with Northrop Grumman Corporation over the past three years to provide a proven, scalable and modular Flight Management System (FMS) software design that meets the requirements for the UH-60V program.

Thales’s FMS software has proven its ability to be integrated by Northrop Grumman into its newest equipment during a flight demonstration on-board a UH-60L helicopter.

Moreover, hosting the Thales’s FMS software directly on Northrop Grumman’s mission computer will provide architecture weight and cost optimization on the UH-60V aircraft, eliminating the need for stand-alone FMS hardware.
