Future Vertical Lift (FVL): Next-Gen V-22 Replacement Programs
What industry companies are working on a future vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle design to replace the Osprey?
DSIAC staff was tasked with identifying industry corporations producing designs for a VTOL to eventually replace the V-22. DSIAC contacted Department of Defense Reliance 21 Air Platforms and Autonomous Systems Communities of Interest (COIs) for leads on finding the requested information. The Reliance 21 leads placed DSIAC in contact with subject matter experts (SMEs) for the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program from Office of Naval Research (ONR), Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), and Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA). These experts provided summaries of the various platforms related to FVL and Army/Navy briefings on FVL updates, and offered to include the inquiring organization in continuous updates on FVL progress. DSIAC delivered the pertinent documents to the inquirer and facilitated connections between the inquirer and the FVL expert group.
