AVIATION WEAPONS SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS BRANCH Overview Background –The Requirement Concept of Employment –The Mission Programmatic Stuff –Blocks –VMX-22 –Transition
AVIATION WEAPONS SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS BRANCH Background The requirement for the V-22 was initially validated by the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) in 1969. The requirement was last revalidated by JROC Memorandum 127-04, dated 20 Jul 04 for ORD Change 4.
AVIATION WEAPONS SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS BRANCH MV Concept Medium Lift Replacement Aircraft –CH-46E is 40 Years Old Supports Joint Functional Concepts – Force Application Supports/Enables –Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare (EMW) and Enhanced Networked Sea Basing Speed Survivability Lift (Internal and External) Combat Radius
AVIATION WEAPONS SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS BRANCH MV-22 vs CH-46E Performance Comparison w/ Wet Wing Mod 2 X as fast 3 X the payload 6 X the range 2 1/2 X the altitude 133 264 10,000 25,000 13163 3600 136 805 Cruise Speed (KCAS) Altitude (Feet) Internal Payload (lbs) Unrefueled Range (nm) CH-46E V-22 341 Twice the Speed Three times the Payload Six times the Range Why We Want It
