The company provided the SmartProbe air data systems and engine controls on the record-breaking aircraft. The X2 team received the prize after the aircraft successfully achieved a speed of 250 knots true air speed in level flight, setting an unofficial record for a helicopter and accomplishing the program’s ultimate speed milestone.
