Imagine a next-generation multi-mission helicopter platform so advanced that it can reach speeds of more than 220 knots, operating at 10,000 feet in 95° F of heat. The Sikorsky S-97 RAIDER? helicopter is poised to realize this vision and revolutionize next-generation military aviation.
The S-97 RAIDER aircraft?s capabilities will meet both conventional U.S. Army and Special Operations future requirements in a variety of combat roles. Additionally, potential applications for US Air Force, US Navy, and US Marine Corp services are being explored. Sikorsky Aircraft has invested in X2? technology to illustrate its commitment to developing future capabilities that are achievable and affordable. X2 technology is scalable to a variety of military missions including light assault, light attack, armed reconnaissance, close-air support, combat search and rescue, and unmanned applications.
