X2 Technology™ Demonstrator

Game-changing X2 Technology™ for future tactical missions

 

HOW IT WORKS

X2 Technology™ is designed for speed, maneuverability and scalability. Based on the XH-59A prototype, the Collier Award winning X2 Technology Demonstrator made significant improvements in vibration reduction, weight reduction and blade technology that enables the aircraft to be flown by a single pilot, with a single engine.

 
 


VIBRATION REDUCTION

Use oppositional forces to reduce vibrations and lower noise signature

 


FLY-BY-WIRE

Reduces operator workload and opens the door for optionally-piloted vehicle

 


BLADE TECHNOLOGY

Rigid, composite and coaxial blades maintain lift and stability at high speeds. High performance pusher propeller enables top speed

 
 

 

THE FUTURE

X2 Technology is the foundation for Lockheed Martin’s support to Future Vertical Lift with its air vehicle and systems design.

The Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program will shape the U.S. military’s helicopter fleet of the future. Led by the U.S. Army, FVL will replace helicopters across the military through five different categories. Sikorsky has invested in – and proven – X2 Technology to illustrate its commitment to developing future capabilities that are achievable and affordable – for both military and commercial organizations.

 

S-97 RAIDER
The S-97 RAIDER® helicopter is able to fly 276 miles per hour, nearly double the speed of an average helicopter. RAIDER is part of the X2 family – a next-generation light tactical prototype helicopter capable of carrying six troops and external weapons.

DEFIANT
The SB>1 DEFIANT™ Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrator (JMR TD) helicopter is Sikorsky’s third X2® aircraft in less than 10 years. It is being designed and built by Sikorsky and Boeing and will prove the scalability of the X2 design to a 30,000-lb. class weight.
