As previously announced, this modern rotorcraft, named by DARPA as the "Heliplane," is designed to exploit GBA's gyrodyne technology. A "gyrodyne" can be considered as an airplane that does not need a runway. It offers the VTOL capability of a helicopter, the fast forward flight of an airplane, and the safety, simplicity and reliability of a GBA gyroplane.
