You also have the problem that defense contractors are not excited to share core software code with their competitors. 
Unless of course the government is willing to buy the code.  They usually do not.

Where did JMR-TD end up on the data rights side?

Could either design fit in a C-5 / C-17?  ???

The idea is that they are fast enough and have enough range to self-deploy.

Transpacific?
Until we've got the dim I guess we can assess that Boeing certainly helped to get them with a plan B:

I think there is some data sharing but given that the industry teams put something like 5 times the amount funds into the effort, I suspect the there is not complete data rights.

Would be quite a trip if the CH-47 and CH-53 could be airlifted but neither JMR candidate could be.



Granted, you can't just drive it onboard, but it's doable.

Well you can cram just about anything (rotorcraft wise) into a C-17 if you disassemble it enough.

I assume the rotor mast will come out.  After that, it should be an easy fit.  Just hope the rotors and other bits can fit on a stand in the same aircraft.

In case you were the one person on the planet not aware that the V-280 has been flying for a year.

In depth status update of V-280.  At ~ 10:30 mark, discussion touches on the subject of Army acceptance of tilt rotors.
