AdamWorks Selected By AVX Aircraft Company For Joint Multi-Role (JMR) Phase I Technology Demonstrator Engineering

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  AdamWorks ( www.adamworksinc.com), a company that designs and manufactures lightweight high-strength composite structures, has been selected by AVX Aircraft Company to provide structural engineering services in development of its Joint Multi-Role (JMR) technology demonstrator helicopter.

AVX Aircraft Company announced that the Aviation and Missile Research,  Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) of the U.S. Army has awarded AVX a Technology Investment Agreement to refine AVX's objective aircraft design developed under a previous JMR contract and make preparations for building and flight-testing a coaxial compound helicopter technology demonstrator.

AVX Aircraft Company and its industry teammates have been designing and refining a unique Compound Coaxial Helicopter (CCH) since 2009 under the JMR Configuration Trades and Analysis (CTA) program. This new award allows AVX and teammates to continue with the CCH predesign, followed by a more detailed design, and the potential to build and test of a Technology Demonstrator aircraft that validates the critical technologies of the CCH configuration in order to meet the JMR performance criteria (speed, hover efficiency, and cruise efficiency) while providing the war fighter's operational needs (troop transport, medevac, self-deployment, cargo, and ship board compatibility, etc.).  An armed variant that has parts commonality with the transport replicates the transport performance including speed. 

The AVX approach provides a highly effective solution to the JMR requirements including lower costs for development, acquisition, and O&S.  The AVX JMR objective aircraft is shown in the artist's concept above.

The AVX JMR aircraft is designed for the U.S. war fighter.  It features accommodations for 14 troops, a rear ramp and two side doors for rapid troop ingress and egress, cargo loading and three external cargo hooks.  The AVX JMR objective aircraft is fully shipboard compatible and has a smaller footprint than legacy aircraft (UH60 and AH64).
