Universal Avionics’ FMS selected for Black Hawk FANS program

Universal Avionics, in partnership with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Engineering Development Center (AMRDEC), Prototype Integration Facility (PIF), and prime contractor Redstone Defense Systems, has integrated an IFR-capable flight management system (FMS) for the U.S. Army’s Sikorsky HH/UH-60L/M Black Hawk Federated Advanced Navigation System (FANS) program.

This meets the program’s requirement to integrate a commercial off the shelf (COTS) FAA-certified navigational system for the incorporation of required navigation performance area navigation (RNP/RNAV) and Global Position System RNAV (GPS/RNAV) requirement.

To meet the GPS/RNAV requirement, H-60 aircraft will be fitted with a single UNS FMS with 4-inch flat panel control display unit (FPCDU).
