HOUSTON (BNS): US Army has awarded the Rolls-Royce a multi-million dollar contract to design and develop a dual channel FADEC (full authority digital engine control) for the M250 powered OH-58 Kiowa Warrior helicopter.

According to a news release by the Rolls-Royce, the dual channel FADEC will draw from the latest commercially-derived Rolls-Royce technology. The results will include increased functionality, decreased pilot workload and lower cost of operation.

"This FADEC is part of an overall modernisation programme that will significantly extend the life of the Kiowa Warrior platform and keep it at the forefront of military reconnaissance missions," said Ken Roberts, President of the Rolls-Royce Helicopter Engine business.

The Bell OH-58 Kiowa helicopter is used for observation, utility, and direct fire support.
