American helicopters "Black Hawk" get digital cockpits 21 century

43
The UH-60 “Black Hawk” support helicopter faithfully serves US forces with 1979 g. It has proven its vitality and effectiveness, spawning dozens of modifications for special operations. Now he will get an upgrade worthy of the 21 of the century. Reported it Gearmix.



The publication notes that the presence of a helicopter in the service for so long led to two serious problems. The first - the original avionics of the machine is fundamentally outdated. The second is that only part of the active helicopters received an updated flight system. This forces American pilots to learn how to fly with both the old (analog) and the new (digital) cockpit.

And just recently the concern Northrup Grumman announced that the Pentagon had handed him a contract to replace all the analogue Black Hawk control panels with “new digital electronic displays”.

American helicopters "Black Hawk" get digital cockpits 21 century


A company press release states:
“The system has a centralized processor with a separate, modular flight program with an integrated architecture that allows you to add new features using software without resorting to hardware modifications. This architecture maximizes the performance and reliability of the UH-60L platform while minimizing the total cost throughout its life cycle. Also, such a system is smaller, lighter, and requires less energy than sequential processing systems. ”
.

Northrup intends to upgrade UH-900 helicopters around 60 for several years, but the concern did not name the specific completion dates for the entire program.

        in vain you doubt the guys!
        Americans in the process of washing the dough ahead of the rest of the planet

        specific deadlines for the end of the program mean the end of financing, and so there are a bunch of options

        they will make 900 turntables in a couple of years it will turn out that they need modernization, maybe they missed something there - the task is extremely difficult, so the first pancake is lumpy, but we are already "deep in the subject", the money is "mastered" for good reason and you still have nowhere to go
        will make the same xnumx turntables again,

        in a couple of years, it will turn out that due to global secrecy in some company, the system does not integrate well in some new troop control system that costs 10 times more expensive and which no one is going to remodel or is not suitable for new weapons
        kolondak dough damn ... niagara

        If there is a contract from the army, then there are proven working samples.
        And the timing depends on the budget.
        Until the budget is approved, there are no deadlines.

      It would be better if the Anglo-Saxons stocked up crackers, kerosene and matches. If not people, then nature itself will not tolerate them for a long time. And in vain they think that having provoked hatred among the Slavs, they will only count the profits. The evil they produce has reached a critical mass and is threatening life itself on planet Earth, and for this reason people will pay them the same hundred-fold coin. For every child killed in Ukraine, Anglo-Saxons will pay with their lives. For every ruined house - the ruined cities of this satanic British empire ...

      Well, it’s more correct to compare the 31st with f-15, they are similar in age, and they continue to receive upgrades (here they are also cornered so that the F-35 is not ready, or rather, not finished). But the Mi-8 is being actively modernized and new ones are being built, Avionics can and should be changed, and indeed it is necessary to saturate the fleet with helicopter equipment. The transfer of troops will be faster, the same airborne very useful. Although it would be possible for us to have a tiltrotor with a payload capacity of 16 tons, so that the BMD-4 would fit in, then it would be more interesting.

        There was a Mi-30 convertiplane project, but there the payload was 3-5 tons (about the same as on the V-22 Osprey). I think it is possible to revive this project, only financially expensive (a tiltrotor will cost the price like a modern fighter, or even more expensive) and it is not known whether they are working in this direction now ...

          No one needs analogs of the 31st except Russia, since no one has such territories in need of patrolling. MiG-25/31 is designed specifically to cover large areas.
          Canadians in the 70s created an analogue of the MiG-25, but it did not go into the series, due to the development of ICBMs (it, like the MiG-25, was primarily intended to intercept enemy strategic aircraft from the direction of the pole)

          For several decades, the U.S. Army has been gradually updating the aging fleet of helicopters, but this approach has become too expensive and the technical limit of upgrading obsolete platforms has already been reached. The AVX concept called JMR-TD FVL is one of the options offered as a possible replacement for an aging fleet of vehicles such as Black Hawk, Apache and Chinook.
          This is an American text in translation. And they are being modernized primarily for sale. There are almost no write-offs ...... they can count money .....

    Modernization is a good thing, but it all depends on the means, as if the hundreds of billions of dollars that our oligarchs looted in collaboration with officials and deputies of all stripes were useful to us now. betraying the interests of the country and undermining the foundations of the state, and punishing those responsible as in China.

    "Modernization is a good thing"
    At the Kazan Aircraft Plant, the modernization of the Tu-22M3 missile carriers is in full swing. And then ...
    In Crimea, at the air base in Guards, it is planned to place a regiment of Tu-22M3 missile carriers, which will be the biggest nuisance for the United States, since this decision of the Russian Defense Ministry can affect the change in the military balance not only in the region, but also in Europe as a whole.
    Experts have already calculated: in order to guarantee the destruction of missile defense systems in Romania and Poland, as well as any US naval groups with missile defense systems in the Black and Mediterranean Seas (of course, if they threaten our security), it is enough for Russia to have order in this direction 22-25 Iskander-M operational missiles, and the same number of cruise missiles on Tu-22M3 heavy bombers. Only in this case, Washington’s assurances that the missile defense system is not directed against Russia, can finally be believed, since the threat to the security of our country from the European missile defense will really be reduced to zero.

And integrated circuits built on linear and unprotected forms of layout of electronic components generally do not give a chance to survive. even without a direct hit.

    If you look from the side of practicality and economy, then the right thing the Americans do is not write off old equipment in scrap metal, but give them the opportunity to live more.
    Moreover, on the condition that it will most likely go to the "stress points" of the banana republics, where such US equipment will be enough for the eyes in the absence of effective countermeasures, where there are few modern MANPADS and air defense systems (Papuans' assault rifles do not count).
