X2 Technology™ Basics

The game-changing RAIDER aircraft is based on Sikorsky’s Collier Award-winning X2 Technology™ Demonstrator “for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency, and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year.”

On September 15, 2010, the X2 Technology™ Demonstrator unofficially broke the rotorcraft speed record by travelling in excess of 250kts.

X2 Technology™ delivers excellent low speed helicopter capabilities
with no configuration change to enable high speed flight
