NHI is proud to announce the successful conduct of the first ever NH90 Product Conference. With the clear objectives of increasing communication, cooperation and confidence in the NH90 Program, NHI was for the first time able to gather the Customers from all 14 NH90 Nations, in the one place at the same time, namely in Italy on the 6th and 7th of July 2011.

The event was a combination of technical and support briefings, question and answer sessions, and live demonstrations of the NH90 helicopter and support systems. Committed to providing a relevant and engaging event for the Customer, Industry was represented by the Chief Engineers from Agusta Westland, Eurocopter and Fokker, and the NHI Product Support Directors. This meant that for the first time in the history of the NH90 Program on such a large scale, Customers were able to listen, engage and question those people responsible for the technical characteristics and supportability issues of the NH90. The event also provided a unique catalyst for international cooperation as all 14 Nations were represented.

Highlights of the event included presentations on technical developments of the helicopter, the ongoing reduction of scheduled servicing manpower requirements, and a visit to the Agusta Westland facility at Tessera, near the city of Venice. An Italian Army helicopter was on display, fitted with ballistic protection armour plates and 7.62 mm minigun systems. Demonstrations were also given of the Part Task Trainer cockpit, a Mission Planning Station, the GLIMS maintenance software and the Computer Aided Instruction capability.

NHI intends to continue to hold Product Conferences into the future in order to better answer to the Customer’s needs.

ITALY TAKES DELIVERY OF ITS FIRST NH90 NFH

06/23/2011

NHIndustries is pleased to announce the official delivery in Paris le Bourget of the first NH90 NFH helicopter to the Italian Navy.

The Italian Navy has ordered a total of 56 NH90s (46 NFH and 10 TTH units) which will replace its previous generation helicopters for a variety of roles including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and utility. The NH90 NFH will give the Italian Navy a major increase in operational capability and mission effectiveness due to its outstanding technology and performance.

The Italian Navy is the second customer to receive the NH90 in Italy, following the Italian Army which has a total of 60 NH90 TTH helicopters on order. Italy is one of the nations having ordered the NFH variant together with The Netherlands, Norway, France and Belgium. A total of 111 NH90 NFH naval helicopters have been ordered by these nations.

The NH90 NFH variant is primarily designed for autonomous and joint Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Anti Surface Warfare (ASuW) missions. The comprehensive mission equipment packages allow a wide range of additional missions to be performed including Search and Rescue (SAR), maritime patrol, vertical replenishment, troop transport, medical evacuation and amphibious support roles. The helicopter is designed for day and night operations in adverse weather conditions from the decks of ships. Thanks to its optimal weight and dimensions, the deck-lock system, the deck traversing system and the automatic blade and tail folding system, it can operate from small frigates even in high sea states.

The NH90 is the most successful European helicopter programme ever. A total of 529 firm orders have been placed by 19 armed forces in 14 countries including The Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Spain and Belgium in Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand and Oman overseas and 76 NH90 helicopters are already in service today. The NH90, developed in the TTH utility transport and NFH naval versions, proves the ideal solution to meet requirements from many potential additional customers worldwide for a number of duties. The NH90 programme is managed by NAHEMA (NATO Helicopter Management Agency) representing France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Portugal, and by the NH Industries industrial consortium comprising AgustaWestland (32%), Eurocopter (62.5%) and Fokker Aerostructures (5.5%).

This new generation helicopter will join the Spanish Armed Forces in 2012.


The NH90 TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter) is a 11 Ton class helicopter, primarily configured to perform tactical transport missions in all environments, by day and night. The flexibility of the NH90 TTH allows its users to perform multi-role missions such as internal/external load transport, Search and Rescue, Personnel Recovery and Casualty Evacuation.

multifunction displays, fly-by-wire controls with 4-axis automatic flight control. The dedicated mission system includes: A piloting Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) system, helmet mounted sight and display, electronic warfare system, tactical control and tactical communication system, weather radar, digital map generator and an on-board monitoring and diagnostic system. It features a fully composite fuselage fitted with a rear ramp which allows the transport of a light tactical vehicle. The two General Electric GE CT7-8F5 engines provide power reserve in all environments. The NH90 helicopter has provision for a number of role equipment to enable mission flexibility and effectiveness coupled with the latest standards for safety and survivability.

The twin-engine, medium-size NH90 helicopter programme is managed by the consortium NHIndustries, a company owned by AgustaWestland (32%), Eurocopter (62.5%), and Fokker
