Curtiss-Wright Congratulates Sierra Nevada Corporation on Being Selected by U.S. DoD to Provide Degraded Visual Environment System for HH-60G Rotorcraft

Posted by jhadmin

PARIS AIR SHOW 2019, PARIS, France (Kallman U.S. Chalet #8) – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today congratulated Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) on its recent selection by the U.S. DoD to provide the Degraded Visual Environment System (DVES) for use on the Air Force’s HH-60G Pave Hawk combat search and rescue helicopters. SNC’s DVES, which uses safety certifiable rugged commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded technology, improves situational awareness to pilots and aircrew operating in DVE conditions by adding new functional capabilities to the HH-60G. Use of the DVES will increase the safety of military aircrews by enabling pilots to safely operate in aircraft-induced degraded visual environments such as brownout and whiteout conditions through the use of a multi-sensor system that provides real-time, high-resolution fused data and imagery of the terrain and obstacles. This game-changing technology will increase aircrew situational awareness of obstacles throughout all phases of flight including, power lines, ditches, mountains, rocks and other obstacles, reducing loss of life and equipment.

NTSB Final Report: Yabucoa, PR

Posted by jhadmin

According to the helicopter pilot, he dropped off a lineman on top of a power line tower to install fiber lines. The lineman completed the task and informed the pilot by radio that he was ready to be picked up from the tower. While picking up the lineman, the pilot hovered next to the tower and signaled to the lineman that he was ready for him to transfer from the tower to the helicopter’s left skid. When the lineman reached out to attach his lanyard to the helicopter, the pilot felt the main rotor blades strike a fiber line that the lineman had just installed. The helicopter became controllable, and the pilot conducted a precautionary landing without picking up the lineman. After the pilot discussed the event with the lineman, the lineman raised the fiber line to a higher position on the tower and then the pilot picked him up.
