 The SB>1 Defiant is designed to fly at twice the speed and range of today’s conventional helicopters and offers advanced agility and maneuverability.

The aircraft will help inform the next generation of military helicopters as part of the U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift program.

The helicopter is participating in the army’s Joint Multi-Role-Medium Technology Demonstrator program with data from SB>1 Defiant helping the army develop requirements for new utility helicopters expected to enter service in early-2030.
