Missions & Features
The AW169M meets the requirements of military, homeland security and government users. It can successfully perform a wide variety of roles including troop transport, logistics support, surveillance and reconnaissance, Special Forces operations, command and control, medical and casualty evacuation, Search and Rescue (SAR) and personnel recovery.
Advanced avionics and systems
Advanced avionics and systems enhance the AW169M’s multi-role capabilities. The single/dual-pilot VFR/IFR NVG-compatible integrated glass cockpit reduces pilot workload and maximises external visibility, allowing the crew to concentrate on the mission. Powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210A engines, with FADEC, combined with the advanced rotor system provide superior ‘hot and high’ performance.
Spacious and flexible cabin
The unobstructed cabin can carry up to 10 troops and can be converted to accommodate two stretchers. There is optional ballistic protection for cockpit and cabin, while self-sealing tanks and a defensive aids suite ensure high levels of survivability and crashworthiness. Large sliding doors enable rapid entry and egress, as well as hoisting and rappelling/fast roping missions.
Customised for the mission
The AW169M can be customised with a wide range of equipment, sensor and weapon systems to provide outstanding mission flexibility to military operators. Options include military communications, radar, Electro-Optic/Infra-Red (EO/IR) device, searchlight, loudspeakers, rescue hoist and cargo hook, and crew-served weapons.
