What COTs/GOTs "light helicopters" are transportable in a C-17III and can be quickly equipped for military operations?

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) received a technical inquiry requesting information on light helicopters that are transportable on a Boeing C-17III Globemaster aircraft and that can be equipped for a variety of desired operations.  The desired qualities included the ability to fit a fleet of four or more of the helicopters in the C-17III; that the helicopters be either commercial or government off-the-shelf; and equipped with a simple but proven intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance package.  DSIAC compiled information on nine helicopter manufacturers and 12 models with the dimensions of the helicopters that met the inquirer’s requirements, as well as one prototype model.
