Abstract:

The Army Aviation Research, Development, Test and Engineering RDT and E Plan is the U.S. Army Aviation Systems Command USAAVSCOM response to the requirement for a Consolidated R and D Plan CRDP, which constitutes Block 13a in the Life-Cycle Management Model LCMM as described in the Joint CDCAMC Materiel Need Procedures Handbook, March 1972. This Plan is prepared and maintained by AVSCOM on a continuing basis to address the short- and long-range RDT and E activities directed to achieving the Army objectives for which AVSCOM is responsible. This Plan presents a time-phased analysis and presentation of the scientific and technological programs required to support the development of advanced airmobile systems responsive to the future needs of the Army. This document sets forth plans and objectives for Army aviation research and development activities for the FY76-95 period, with particular emphasis on the period from the present to 1980. Current R and D efforts in Army air mobility are directed primarily toward the development of a family of vertical and short takeoff and landing aircraft to fulfill identified requirements in the land combat functions of mobility, intelligence, firepower, combat service support, and command, control and communications. The Plan either the classified or unclassified version is quite voluminous because of the broad scope of activities and the wide variety of technologies and disciplines that constitute the totality of the air vehicle technology.
