Formation Managment System
Stationkeeping Equipment 2000 (SKE-2000) is an avionics formation management system that allows up to 36 aircraft on 4 different frequency channels to fly fully instrumented formation in zero visibility. The aircraft can operate within a 10nm radius of a selected participating master system on the same frequency.

Smart Zapper
The Smart Zapper consists of (8) chip detectors which are located in the main transmission mast, input gearbox, and sump as well as the intermediate and tailrotor gearboxes. The system is designed to clear ferrous debris equivalent to 0.06-MM diameter iron wire which accumulates across the sensor’s magnetic gap. Debris, equivalent to 0.13-MM diameter ironwire, is considered significant and will not be cleared, thereby activating a cockpit caution light.

AMRAAM
The AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile, or AMRAAM (pronounced am-ram), is a modern Beyond Visual Range (BVR) air-to-air missile (AAM) capable of all weather day and night performance. Designed with the same form-factor as the previous generation of semi-active guided Sparrow missiles, it is a fire-and-forget missile with active guidance. It is also commonly known as the Slammer in USAF service.
