Helicopters equipped with CMC’s FMS equipment under this contract will be delivered to both the US Army and the US Air Force. Additionally, numerous FMS equipped helicopters will be delivered to international Black Hawk customers. These helicopters will see a wide range use missions from search and rescue, medical evacuation, firefighting and disaster relief to troop transport and border patrol.
“Sikorsky and CMC have been collaborating for more than 25 years to ensure that the Black Hawk Flight Management System provides a highly reliable navigation solution with the capabilities needed to enable war fighters to complete crucial missions and save lives. CMC is excited to partner with Sikorsky on this latest program,” said Brad Nolen, Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

The CMA-2082MC is part of CMC’s broader family of military FMS products that have been supplying FMS and specific functionalities on various military programs around the world for over 40 years. With a strong heritage behind it, the CMA-2082MC continues to evolve with modular, open solutions aligned with both MOSA and FACE aircraft architectures.
