SNC to provide HH-60G DVES

6th June 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has been awarded a contract by the US Air Force for system design, development, integration and test of the Degraded Visual Environment System (DVES) for the HH-60G aircraft.

The DVES enables pilots to safely take-off or land in aircraft-induced brownout and whiteout conditions, providing situational awareness of uncharted terrain and obstacles for safe flight operations. It will give HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter combat search and rescue aircrew the ability to overcome operational limitations posed by loss of visual situational awareness in aircraft-induced DVE.

Greg Cox, executive vice president for SNC’s Electronic & Information Systems business area, said: ‘We are honoured to provide the most advanced and capable DVE solution available today to our country’s combat search and rescue aircrews.

‘Our DVE solutions leverage over a decade of experience and investment to provide the most mature, safe and comprehensive solution available for mitigating the effects of DVE.’
