The V-22 is a joint-service, multi-mission aircraft that combines the capabilities of a helicopter and a turboprop aircraft.
"We have been part of the V-22 program since its start. Our expertise in modernizing aircraft like V-22 will ensure its pilots have the best tools to be combat effective and return safely," said Todd Probert, vice president for mission support and modernization at Raytheon.
