Sensor turret installation is validated for the UH-72A

Flight tests have been completed with the electro-optical/infrared sensor turret for UH-72A Lakotas that will be operated by the U.S. Army National Guard in Security and Support (S&S) missions.

The L3 Wescam MX-15 turret's chin-mounted centerline installation was validated during flight tests with an EC145 – the helicopter on which EADS North America's UH-72A is based. 

Completion of these tests marks a major milestone in the integration of the Army National Guard's full mission equipment package.  The Army National Guard will be a major operator of UH-72A Lakotas, receiving aircraft configured for the S&S mission, as well as for use in medical evacuation and multi-role transportation.
