Thales to Boost H145M Mission Capability

Thales Group was recently awarded a contract from Airbus Helicopters for the test of its rocket systems to boost the H145M mission capability. This contract follows the selection of both Thales rocket systems (70mm NATO and 68mm Induction) to provide such capabilities to Airbus Helicopters’ platforms equipped with its new weapon management system, HForce.
In October 2017, Airbus Helicopters completed a ballistic development test of an HForce weapon system equipped on an H145M platform at the Bakony Combat Training Centre (BCTC) in Hungary. The system test included unguided 70mm / 2.75” rockets (with FZ231 12 tube launcher) as well as a helmet mounted sight display Scorpion by Thales.
In December 2017, the test firings of Thales 70mm / 2.75” (“FZ275”) laser guided rockets were conducted on an H145M platform at the Älvdalen test range of the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration Flight test Centre, in an adverse and challenging environment. With precision to within one metre, the guided air-to-ground rocket improves target engagement capabilities while reducing platform vulnerability. These successful test firings display the reliability and maturity of Thales’s rocket systems. Final qualification for both laser-guided products is planned for end 2019.
Thanks to its precise Hybrid-Optical motion tracking (HObiT), Scorpion secures Crew Resource Management during critical phase before firing, saving time and avoiding any misunderstanding between gunner and pilot. Equipped with a full colour day/night display, Scorpion is the new monocular helmet-mounted sight display reference for Light Armed Helicopters.
