Description: The Joint Heavy Lift (JHL) is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) program intended to produce a theater tactical transport aircraft capable of lifting heavyweight loads vertically. The end customer for the JHL aircraft would be the US Army. To date, DoD has selected three industry teams for the conceptual design and analysis phase of JHL program: Karem Aircraft and Lockheed Martin with the Optimum Speed Tilt-Rotor (OSTR) design; Boeing and Bell Helicopter with the Advanced Tandem Rotor Helicopter (ATRH) and QuadTiltrotor (QTR) aircraft; and Sikorsky with its X2 Technology Demonstrator.
