AVX Aircraft JMR

JOINT MULTI-ROLE (JMR)

AVX employs a horizontally integrated manufacturing strategy that utilizes a large compliment of world-class aviation industry team mates.  By teaming with experienced aerospace companies for development of the AVX JMR/FVL design (see image below), AVX keeps the cost of development and eventual production of the aircraft lower than our competitors while delivering the highest levels of performance by the aircraft.

FVL (Future of Vertical Lift) Program by the US Armed Forces seeks to develop replacement vertical lift aircraft for the aging USA Armed Forces helicopter fleet. the precursor for the FVL is the JMR (Joint Multi-Role) Helicopter Program providing technology demonstrations. This video reveals the AVX Aircraft Company’s answer to that challenge.

THE AVX JMR AIRCRAFT

The AVX design offers the capabilities the Army wants for the future fleet of utility and attack aircraft at a very attractive price. The AVX JMR aircraft has entry doors on both sides of the fuselage as well as a large rear ramp for easy cargo handling. Additionally it has retractable landing gear and the attack variant (see below) carries all armaments stored inside until needed which provides a “clean” aerodynamic design.

AVX has teamed with a number of experienced aerospace companies for development of the AVX JMR/FVL design. The teaming concept has allowed AVX to keep the cost of development and eventual production of the aircraft lower than those of other offerings while maintaining a high level of performance by the aircraft.

UTILITY PERFORMANCE

The illustration below visualizes the configuration for the AVX FVL in “Utility” performance mode. Notable are its specifications for payload capacity, forward speed, takeoff/landing performance and ease of maintenance.

 

Illustration shows patented AVX design for UTILITY Mode JMR. With clean aerodynamics and highest performance value for lowest cost, the AVX answers the Army’s question about the FVL (Future of Vertical Lift).

 

JMR MPS Utility Operation Suitability: Multiple FAST rope provisions; LHD suitable with auto-fold kit; large open cabin for operational flexibility; 13,000 lb. external load; accommodates 12 NATO litters with aisle for head-to-toe access; self-deployable with internal auxiliary fuel cells; accepts two 463L pallets; side guns provide 180° flanking fire suppression…


ATTACK PERFORMANCE

The illustration below visualizes the various configurations available for the AVX FVL in “Attack” performance mode. Notable are the retracted armaments and ramp for better aerodynamic performance and ease of loading, respectively.
