The first priority is taking advantage of enroute precipitation and whiteout hover and landing opportunities. The second priority is obtaining qualitative evaluations from experienced Swiss and German test pilots in DVE. Subsequent technical interchanges will discuss requirements, methodologies and the ability to incorporate them into future DVE-M solutions.

AMRDEC's presence at the NATO flight trials, along with CERDEC and Army Research Labs, has enabled the U.S. participants to demonstrate the research and development work done by RDECOM over the last decade to permit rotorcraft operations in degraded visual environments.
