Bell Textron selects GE Aviation for Aircraft Health Awareness System

GE Aviation has been selected by Bell Textron to provide the Aircraft Health Awareness System as part of Team Invictus for the Bell 360 Invictus competitive prototype, a part of the U.S. Army’s Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) program.

The health awareness system integrates decades of GE’s proven health management technologies on rotorcraft with its vehicle management system on fixed wing to drive increased operational safety and availability of the fleet.

GE Aviation’s Health Awareness System is an end-to-end solution that advances traditional rotorcraft Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) capabilities by combining it with proven fixed-wing aircraft health management solutions. The system includes autonomously gathering and transmission of rotorcraft system configuration, health, usage and maintenance data.
