Abstract : LHX is the acronym for a family of light, highly capable aircraft intended for operational use in the airland battle well beyond the year 2000. They will be capable of operation in a wide variety of adverse environments on a very hostile battlefield (lasers and other directed energy weapons will be commonplace). Accordingly, the conceptual designs being considered are very different from today's helicopters (fig. 1). One major thrust is toward automation of crew duties, with a goal of achieving single pilot operation.
