Abstract:

The unique operational and performance requirements of the Communication System for modern tactical Army helicopters are described. An integrated system architecture is described which satisfies these requirements and incorporates very high levels of automation thereby reducing pilot workload. The automation concepts include the use of a preloaded communication data base and a centralized communication processor containing advanced control, reconfiguration and message formatting software. Link analysis and simulation results are presented which show the performance capabilities of the system with respect to the projected mission requirements. NATO Furnished. RH
