Helibras completes first stage of H225M integration tests with Exocet missiles
 
Helibras completed the first stage of in-laboratory tests this week to integrate Exocet AM39 missiles with the Naval Mission System developed for the Brazilian Navy’s H225M.

During the three weeks of laboratory activities, the team successfully completed several simulated missile launches. This testing phase is intended to verify the connection between the Naval Mission System and missile launchers, to test different modes of operation and to check the instruments that will be used during test flights.

In early 2016, test benching will resume in order to test missiles with the prototype aircraft while in flight in Brazil. Activities are being coordinated by the teams at the Helibras Engineering Center in close cooperation with Airbus Helicopters, MBDA, the manufacturer of Exocet AM39, Atech and Airbus Defence and Space.

"This is another milestone for the H-XBR program, one that confirms Helibras’ total commitment to the project and highlights the professionalism and high level of expertise of Helibras in Brazil," commented Richard Marelli, Vice President of Helibras Operations.

The successful systems integration also demonstrates the maturity of the Brazilian Navy’s H225M Naval Mission Systems development – a completely new configuration that was designed in Brazil by Helibras in collaboration with the customer, Airbus Helicopters and other partner companies.
