Northrop Grumman, in partnership with the U.S. Army Prototype Integration Facility and prime contractor Redstone Defense Systems, completed the first flight of the UH-60V Black Hawk on Jan. 19 in Huntsville, Alabama. Northrop Grumman provided the Integrated Avionics Suite for the UH-60V, which upgrades the U.S. Army’s UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters with a digital cockpit. The scalable, fully integrated and open architecture-based cockpit design replaces older analog gauges with digital electronic instrument displays in the upgraded aircraft. The UH-60V features one of the Army’s most advanced avionics solutions, enabling the complex missions of the army aviation warfighter.
