Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Key Developments

North Slope Borough Signs with Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation for S-92® Helicopter

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. announced that North Slope Borough (NSB), Alaska, has signed for its first-ever S-92® helicopter. The announcement was made at the 2015 Helicopter Association International Heli-Expo show. Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. The helicopter will be used for the critical mission of search and rescue operations (SAR) for all NSB residents. The aircraft was selected to provide a safe, efficient and reliable airborne response to aero medical evacuation (medevac), SAR and other emergencies. NSB is located above the Arctic Circle and operates under some of the harshest cold weather conditions in the world, with temperatures as cold as -55 degrees C with the wind chill. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, NSB has a total area of 94,796 square miles of which 88,695 square miles is land and 6,101 square miles is water, thus the need for a long-range, all-weather capable aircraft was critical to the NSB. Delivery is expected in 2016.

Sikorsky Wins $8 Million Contract for Phase 1 Alias Program from DARPA

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. announced that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded the company an $8 million contract for Phase 1 of the Aircrew Labor In-Cockpit Automation System (ALIAS) program. Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. The objective of DARPA's ALIAS program is to develop and insert new automation into existing aircraft to enable operation with reduced onboard crew. The program seeks to leverage the considerable advances that have been made in aircraft automation systems, including progress made in remotely piloted aircraft, to help reduce pilot workload, augment mission performance, and improve aircraft safety. Sikorsky's approach to ALIAS is based on its Matrix Technology™ introduced in 2013 to develop, test and field systems and software that improve significantly the capability, reliability and safety of flight for autonomous, optionally piloted, and piloted vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. Matrix™ aims to give rotary and fixed-wing aircraft the high level of system intelligence needed to complete complex missions with minimal human oversight. Sikorsky Innovations, the rapid prototyping arm of Sikorsky Aircraft, along with its teammates – the United Technologies Research Center, the National Robotics Engineering Center, and Veloxiti Inc. – plan to demonstrate the value of applying autonomous technology across different aircraft consistent with the ALIAS vision, including the Black Hawk helicopter and other aircraft in the Department of Defense fleet. The Sikorsky team for the Phase 1 effort plans to collaborate with DARPA's ALIAS team on ground tests using a Black Hawk.
