    AVX / L3Harris FARA Helicopter at AUSA 2019


    Helis, October 18, 2019 - AVX Aircraft Company and L3 Technologies showcased the mockup of their innovative compound coaxial helicopter (CCH) design, which is competing for Phase 1 of the U.S. Army Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA)-Competitive Prototype (CP) program competition.

    The two companies first announced their proposal in December 2018.

    The CCH next-generation aircraft is a single-engine design, paired with a wing for lift during high-speed forward flight, provides leap-ahead capabilities in a faster, lighter and more lethal aircraft that requires less maintenance through its life cycle, featuring:

    - A fly-by-wire, side-by-side cockpit optimized for pilot efficiency

    - Two ducted fans that provide forward and reverse thrust for both high-speed operation and agility

    - State-of-the-art modern open systems architecture (MOSA)-based digital backbone and avionics systems

    - A small form factor that meets C-17 loading and Navy DDG shipboard size limits through manually folding blades and wings

    - Modularity that provides for component reuse and a high degree of systems commonality across all of the U.S. Army capability sets
