National Guard helicopters upgraded for homeland security missions
from National Defense Magazine
First responders and law enforcement authorities have long complained of the difficulty in communicating and sharing information with their military counterparts during homeland missions. To help overcome those challenges, the Army is equipping the UH-72A Lakota light utility helicopter with a new mission package to enable pilots and operators to talk and share data with civil authorities and state agencies, said Col. L. Neil Thurgood, project manager for utility helicopters.
