What will helicopters look like in the not-too-distant future there are many strange designs and ideas that people are thinking about today we will take details knowledge about amazing future helicopter concepts

Boeing Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft Concept

aircraft concept Boeing says that the fa-r-a in its present form uses an all-new six-bladed single main rotor powered by a single engine and controlled by a fly-by-wire system there’s also a push propeller for greater maneuverability and horizontal flight at speeds exceeding those of current helicopters up from there is an advanced narrow cross-section cockpit with tandem seating and an intuitive common control interface for both of the crew this includes flexible avionics autonomous capabilities and a large reconfigurable display with touch screen capabilities when in the hangar the Boeing pharaoh has a number of maintenance innovations including the ability to reload munitions faster by eliminating the need for supplemental lifts it also has an on-board diagnostics system that operates in real time and can adjust to degraded conditions the aircraft is an open architecture so it can be readily upgraded

The Invictus

The Invictus concept looks something out of a video game with sleek aerodynamic lines and a raising for the rear rotor developing company should development company bell says it should reach speeds of 200 knots while bearing a 20-millimeter cannon and an integrated missile launcher while the final design may differ slightly from image form on the screen, publicly the design tilts away from the innovation that bell is best known for rotors that swivel to lift the aircraft off the ground then tilt to provide forward thrust the kind that powers the bell boeing v22 osprey

The Sikorsky Raider X

The Sikorsky raider x with a reported top speed of 900 knots has a coaxial rotor system tow top propellers that spin in opposite directions to improve the speed and stability Sikorsky is already flying a version of the helicopter the s97 raider whereas the Invictus is currently the concept stage the raider x is designed to use a single general electric t901 engine the ggt901 was developed under the army’s improved turbine engine program as the new engine for existing and future army rotorcraft based on the s97 and x2 performance raider x is expected to have a maximum speed exceeding 290 miles an hour with a maximum operational altitude of more than 9000 feet radar X is expected to weigh 14 000 pounds or 6400 kilograms the cockpit uses side-by-side seats instead of the tandem seating typical of American attack helicopters internal weapons and sensors are mounted using a modular system in accordance with a far a specifications to anticipate future upgrades and obsolescence meaning this copter can go the distance for years and years as a premier weapon by the air

Aw159 Wildcat

An Aw wildcat helicopter is capable of working in tandem with semi-autonomous uavs it was designed by leonardo an italian aerospace manufacturing and design company it recently successfully demonstrated how a helicopter crew could control the unmanned aerial vehicle from a helicopter like it was an onboard sensor being controlled from the cockpit the combination of the two platforms provided some great advantages in land and maritime tactical scenarios increasing the situational awareness tempo lethality survivability and combat mass of aviation forces while significantly reducing the crew workload piolts can focus on mission at hand delegating some of the tasks to the drone that becomes a detacted sensor of the helicopter able to operate closer to the area of interest as the band platform remains at a safe distance the aw159 has a semi-rigid rotor head to give it a high agility that’s fitted with a composite rotor blades utilizing the same technology that enables the lynx an older model helicopter to break the world helicopter speed record its pair of cts 804n engines have exhaust which include built-in infrared suppression to enhance survivability the cockpit features four large area 10 inch by 8 inch display s and a fully integrated avionics suite and mission system one of these was used to display the live video feed coming from the remotely controlled uav infrared and daytime color imagery of provided through a nose-mounted electro-optical device which incorporate the laser rangefinder naval variants are also equipped with a 360 degree sacn radar and weaponds carrier for a range of torpedoes depth charges and anti-surface missiles The wildcat plus uav concept is a one-two punch that allows helicopter crews to avoid the most dangerous work themselves while still being nearby enough to help in any situation should conflicts arise

Bell FCX-001

The FCX-001 has a fan-driven anti-war helicopter hybridized propulsion morphing main rotor blade tips an extensive use of glass and the fuselage dull wing doors and the use of augmented reality in the cockpit makes this feel like an aircraft. its future on blades the rear of the aircraft doesn’t feature a tail rotor a feature that’s looked upon with skepticism in today’s helicopter circles but one that could prove instrumental in making them safer to operate in the future the anti-torque is provided by multiple fans embedded within the tail boom the vented system gives the capability to thrust in either direction and will also have thrust vector control allowing it to forego a horizontal stability powering that anti-torque system is an electric motor as part of a hybridized propulsion system on the ceiling of the widened cabin which is capable of accommodating of 12 crew well designed a honeycomb of drop-down control modules to allow for maximum customization and controlled passengers concepts envisions the modules providing the ability for passengers to adjust things such as their lighting temperature or infotainment experience
