Lockheed Martin's Sikorsky subsidiary conducted flight tests involving tactical mission kit that works to equip aircraft units with mission management, sensor integration and situational awareness capabilities.

The mission kit has been incorporated into the U.S. Air Force's HH-60W Combat Rescue Helicopter as part of the flight tests and has met the Department of Defense's Future Airborne Capability Environment requirement, Lockheed said Monday.

According to Lockheed, the mission kit uses two common mission processors and is designed to adapt to data link, sensor and countermeasure system updates.

“This tactical mission kit leverages the knowledge we've gained from developing open architecture systems that are easily transportable across multiple aircraft and missions, ultimately leading to reduced lifecycle costs for any program,“ said Scott Breen, a program director at Lockheed's mission systems business.
