Abstract : The United States Army will face a helicopter shortfall in any future mid- or high-intensity conflict. This study addresses the factors which contribute to this problem and identified possible short and long terms solutions. It concludes that the commercial helicopter fleet provides a viable source for alleviating the problem in the near term and suggests that a joint military and civilian development effort for future generations of helicopters provides the best opportunities for long term resolution.
