The New Generation Medium Utility Helicopter








A superior military, multi-role capable platform designed to meet the challenges of 21st Century operations, the AW149 sets new standards for utility, speed, range and safety delivering exceptional tactical superiority and maximum battleeld effect. High performance engines and rotors enable the AW149 to outperform every other medium twin-engine helicopter in its class High volume unobstructed cabin enabling a variety of layouts for multi-role versatility State-of-the-art avionics and mission systems minimise pilot workload allowing the crew to concentrate on mission objectives Powerful CT7 engines deliver high performance for operations in hot and high environments. The AW149 is specically designed as a military helicopter to achieve the multi-mission demands of expeditionary warfare and Homeland Security. This new generation utility helicopter meets both todays stringent military standards and the latest civil certication requirements. The helicopter delivers capability across a broad spectrum of tasks, including: Troop Transport CSAR Special Forces Operations CASEVAC / MEDEVAC Command and Control Re-supply / External load lift SAR / Humanitarian Assistance




SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS The AW149 delivers best-in-class performance, including superior hover performance, a cruise speed in excess of 150kts, a maximum range greater than 650 nm (1,200 km) and endurance of up to 5 hours. With powerful CT7 engines, the AW149 assures superior performance and controllability in extreme hot-and-high environments or harsh conditions, allowing maximum payloads in all challenging operational theatres. The AW149s exceptional power margin provides even in OEI conditions the performance capability needed to achieve mission success, whatever the mission. NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR OPTIMUM CAPABILITY The ergonomic low-workload, high situational awareness Glass Cockpit philosophy is based upon four large Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (8 x 10 inches) with integral input keys and a track ball on the inter-seat console for rapid selection of functions. Mission capabilities are further supported by a state-of-the-art integrated digital avionics system with powerful mission computers. The ARINC 429 and MIL-STD 1553B data bus, enable easy integration of mission equipment for maximum operational effectiveness. The dual channel Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) and 4-axis digital AFCS further contribute to reduced pilot workload and increased situational awareness. The AW149s ergonomic cockpit design, outstanding external visibility, excellent handling characteristics and low vibration levels together with innovative instrument solutions minimise pilot fatigue to allow the crew to concentrate on mission objectives. Advanced open avionics architecture, mission processing, tactical displays and data link ensure the AW149 is fully integrated into todays Network-Enabled operating environment.

SAFETY BUILT-IN Engineered to the highest safety and survivability standards, the AW149 is constructed incorporating the latest advances in aviation technology for greater dependability and safety whilst ensuring completion of the mission objectives. In particular, these advances include: Advanced integrated avionics improving both systems monitoring (HUMS) and operational capability Low detectability due to low radar cross section, IR and acoustic signatures in all phases of ight Damage tolerant, fail safe design Transmission with tested 30 minute run-dry capability Complete redundancy of all vital systems High survivability based on energy-absorbing landing gear and crashworthy crew seats, fuel tanks and airframe High main and tail-rotor ground clearance providing added safety for troops and crew during ingress and egress Provision for Obstacle Warning System (OWS), Terrain Avoidance and Warning System (TAWS) and Trafc Collision Avoidance System (TCAS).


EXCEPTIONAL CABIN VERSATILITY The AW149 has a large (11.6 m), easily-accessible, unobstructed main cabin. It has the capacity to carry heavily laden troops quickly to their drop-off point in support of high tempo operations with all the equipment for the task. The Customer can choose from modular fuel tank options to suit the mission type. The generous 2.4 m cargo area can also be made accessible from the main cabin. This enables ready storage for mission equipment such as stretchers and medical kit whilst keeping the troop cabin free of carry on equipment. The cabin layout can be quickly converted to suit changing tasks, such as CSAR, CASEVAC and troop transport. Options range from an 8-man section in full battle order with section support weapons plus two door gunners to 18 soldiers in ferry conguration. Alternatively, the ample space may be utilised for a wide variety of tailored mission and role equipment including NATO standard litters. The AW149 has large sliding doors on both sides making the AW149 an excellent platform for rapid boarding and egress. This design ensures fast recovery of stretchers on the ground or in ight using the hoist whilst allowing simultaneous cover re from window-mounted weapons (7.62mm/ 12.7mm machine gun). Low oor height enables ease of loading and unloading cargo through cabin doors. Hard points enable fast roping and rappelling from both sides of the cabin.
