Triumph Group (NYSE: TGI) has announced it has joined Lockheed Martin company (NYSE: LMT) Sikorsky, to celebrate the successful first flight of the Black Hawk helicopter equipped with a fly-by-wire technology kit, the company said.
This technology will enable the helicopter to operate as both an unmanned aircraft or with reduced crew as the flight program develops.
Triumph Mechanical Solutions, an operating company of Triumph Integrated Systems, is a strategic supplier to Sikorsky and provides a key component of the fly-by-wire kit, the Sensor Feel Module (SFM). The SFM provides tactile feedback to a pilot, simulating the feel of the existing UH-60 Black Hawk mechanical flight control system.

The company serves the global aviation industry, including original equipment manufacturers and the full spectrum of military and commercial aircraft operators.
