Abstract : This paper describes the operational capabilities of the V-22 Osprey, the world's first operational tiltrotor aircraft. The designed-in capabilities of the V-22, plus its performance characteristics, provide a multi-mission aircraft that will improve the capability of all service forces well into the 21st century. Key elements in providing a broad operational capability are shipboard compatibility, payload-range, maneuverability, high speed capability with an external load, reduced vulnerability, and glass cockpit integrated avionics for reduced pilot workload during day and night missions.
