Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD uses helicopters to meet a variety of military missions. The unique demands of these missions -- principally engaging an enemy -- require military helicopters to have capabilities that non-military civil ones do not need. Although most civil helicopters are generally spin-offs of military models, they lack the specialized navigation and electronic equipment, weapon systems, and related systems that provide military capabilities. The ability of the helicopter industry to meet DoDs requirements in the coming years has been a key question. This assessment finds that DoD can be confident that the helicopter industry will be able to meet military requirements for the foreseeable future.
