A Modular Package for the Black Hawk UH-60 Platform
WESCAM’s MatriX™ ISR solution for the UH-60 is a combination of best-in-class Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies working together to expand the mission capabilities of the Black Hawk platform. The solution transforms this proven utility helicopter into one with full ISR capabilities in as little as six hours. The UH-60 maintains its full utility capability throughout the upgrade. Removing ISR capabilities and reverting back to its original state can be completed in approximately two hours. Both transitions are accomplished with minimal risk – at a low cost.
Adding ISR Capability to the UH-60
The compact UH-60 MatriX ISR solution includes an MX™-Series surveillance or designating turret. Configured for ISR operations, the turret is equipped with multi-spectral imaging capabilities, ensuring 24/7 visibility, high-accuracy target GEO-Location software and stable auto-mode gimbal steering. Additionally, its fully-stabilized sensor suite enables effective, long standoff operation.
UH-60 Mission Console
The UH-60’s compact walk-on/walk-off console is equipped with a mission computer, featuring a moving map and operator interface, as well as sensor management and automation tools. Also included are video analytic features, such as L3 WESCAM’s Moving Target Indicator (MTI), high-definition (HD) monitors, mission planning tools and a mission recorder. The console is fully compatible and easily interfaces with additional pieces of auxiliary mission equipment.
