EADS Defence & Security has been contracter to equip three Sikorsky S-92 tactical transport helicopters of the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) with its HELLAS (Helicopter Laser Radar) obstacle warning system.

HELLAS ensures the detection of obstacles that are virtually invisible for pilots, such as high-voltage power lines, thus enabling missions to be carried out even under difficult visibility conditions. HELLAS is also installed into RTAF Bell 412 helicopters.
