Sikorsky Aircraft has wrapped up the critical design review (CDR) for the CH-53K heavy lift helicopter. Teams from the manufacturer and the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) met in late July to conduct the review, which involved checking system requirements and functions, and performing supplier-level CDRs, software reviews and sub-system CDRs. The helicopter can now progress to the assembly, test and evaluation stages.
