TECHNOLOGY

Sikorsky and Boeing recently provided the first look at the SB>1 DEFIANT helicopter the companies have developed for the US Army’s Joint Multi-Role technology demonstrator programme.

The SB>1 DEFIANT is designed to fly at twice the speed and range of today’s conventional helicopters and offer advanced agility and maneuverability to help inform the next generation of military helicopters as part of the US Army’s Future Vertical Lift programme.

The helicopter is participating in the Army’s Joint Multi-Role-Medium Technology Demonstrator program. Data from SB>1 DEFIANT will help the US Army develop requirements for new utility helicopters expected to enter service in the early 2030s.
