Army Aircraft Systems Development Program 650249

The Army's aircraft development efforts are directed toward six major systems. The principal thrust is in the vertical and short takeoff and landing concepts, ranging from low to moderate disc loading. The six major aircraft systems are: light observation, surveillance and target acquisition, advanced aerial fire support, utility tactical transport, light tactical transport, and heavy lift. Coupled with these efforts, the Army conducts a number of exploratory and advanced development projects not specifically directed toward any individual system, but which will result in improved small turbine engines, reduction of aircraft vulnerability, noise and vibration abatement, improved controllability, reduction of power train weight, and increased armament effectiveness.
