Countermeasures

The aircraft's electronic warfare suite includes the ATK AN/AAR-47 missile warning system, which consists of four electro-optic sensors with photomultipliers, a signal processing unit and a cockpit display.

"The V-22 Osprey aircraft is equipped with a 12.7mm turreted gun system."

The aircraft is also equipped with a radar and infrared threat warning system and chaff and flare dispensers with 60 rounds of dispensables. The CV-22 features the suite of integrated radio frequency measures (SIRFC) developed by ITT Avionics.

Engines

The aircraft is powered by two Rolls-Royce AE1107C turboshaft engines rated at 4,586kW maximum continuous power.

The engines are fitted with full-authority digital electronic control (FADEC) supplied by Lucas Aerospace, backup analog electronic control system, and fire protection system from Systron Donner.

A transmission interconnect shaft provides single-engine operation. The thermal signature of the aircraft is minimised with an AiResearch infrared emission suppression unit, installed on the nacelles near the engine exhaust.

The entire rotor, transmission and engine nacelles tilt through 90° in forward rotation and are directed forwards for forward flight, and through 7° 30' in aft rotation for vertical take-off and landing.

Performance

The V-22 can climb at the rate of 16.2m/s. The maximum and cruise speeds of the aircraft are 565km/h and 510km/h respectively. The range is 3,379km. The combat range and service ceiling are 692km and 7,620m respectively.
