Sikorsky, and partner Boeing, are proving the scalability and tailorability of Sikorsky's Collier award-winning X2 Technology™ through SB>1 DEFIANT®. Being developed for the U.S. Army's joint multi-role technology demonstration program, this medium-class technology demonstrator will help inform the next generation of military helicopters.
DEFIANT: The Weapon System Built for Multi-Domain Operations for the Next 50 Years
Utility helicopters like the Future Long-Range Attack and Assault (FLRAA) aircraft fly low and fast, land quickly, deliver Soldiers and get out — all while evading the enemy in complex terrain. Sikorsky and partner Boeing have created an agile, maneuverable weapon system that flies twice as far and twice as fast as the Black Hawk — and sits in the same operational footprint. Delivering reach and survivability, DEFIANT is the choice between just getting there and achieving mission success.
