Becker Avionics has announced that Ukrainian Helicopters Aviation Company has signed a contract for the retrofit of its 28 multipurpose Mi-8 MTV-1 medium lift helicopters with the Becker DVCS 6100 digital audio system. 

“We are extremely excited that Ukrainian Helicopters has selected Becker Avionics for its digital communications needs,” said Thomas Terschlusen, director of sales and marketing with Becker.

The multipurpose Mi-8 MTV-1 medium lift helicopters are capable of performing a wide variety of air operations. Ukrainian Helicopters Aviation Company, Ukraine’s largest helicopter operator, has played a pivotal role in global humanitarian, stabilization, and peacekeeping missions for more than a decade.

Becker Avionics has delivered the first digital voice communication system (DVCS) system to Ukrainian Helicopters. The DVCS provides many advantages over analogue systems.  The DVCS provides access to eight communication channels (expandable up to 16), eight navigation channels and remote capability for to up to six pilots/operators and up to 12 passengers. The crystal clear communications are well beyond that achievable with analogue systems.

The system is fully programmable by the aircraft operators, allowing each DVCS system to be configured specifically to that unit’s needs without any additional wiring, switches or other modifications. Adding or removing function to the system, new radios or any configuration change can be done simply through a provided computer program.

Ukrainian Helicopters will showcase the first upgraded Mi-8 MTV-1 medium lift helicopters with the Becker DVCS 6100 digital audio system during the Farnborough International Airshow from July 11 to 17.

Becker invites all attendees to visit this first upgraded Mi-8 MTV-1 during the event.
