The service is set to conduct experiments at Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona, as a response to army validated operational needs statements and help identify “capabilities supporting the Future Vertical Lift [FVL] ecosystem,” according to the FVL Cross Functional Team (CFT).

As part of the upcoming demonstration, the army will use a Boeing AH-64E Apache aircraft to conduct the Spike NLOS demo.
