Full Motion Video System Enhances Navy Helicopters

Feb. 21, 2019
Cubic Corp. has been contracted by NAVAIR for a full-motion-video (FMV) communications system for U.S. Navy Knighthawk helicopters.

Cubic Corp. and its Cubic Mission Solutions business division has been awarded a contract from the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) for a full-motion-video (FMV) system for the U.S. Navy’s MH-60S multi-mission helicopters. The addition of Cubic’s MH-60S FMV systems to the helicopters will greatly increase its operational capabilities to send and receive visual information. These modular FMV systems leverage an innovative dual-channel modem developed by Cubic and software written by Sierra Nevada Corp. to provide wideband communications-data-link (CDL) capabilities with advanced touch-screen color display that are also highly secure.

“Full Motion Video capability is critical to the ever-increasing mission complexities of the MH-60S operating environments,” said Mike Twyman, president of Cubic Mission Solutions. “Our MH-60S FMV System solution is the culmination of decades of experience and a focused effort to address current and emerging needs reflected in the MH-60S operational scenarios and FMV functional requirements.” The MH-60S Knighthawk multi-mission helicopter is also known as the Seahawk naval helicopter.
