The SB-1 Defiant is Boeing and Sikorsky's response to the US Army's requirement for a medium-lift utility helicopter under its Future Vertical Lift programme.
The SB-1 Defiant is a co-development programme between Sikorsky and Boeing, designed to inform the US Army's Future Vertical Lift programme.
21 марта 2019г. в США на заводском аэродроме Уэст-Палм-Бич в штате Флорида состоялся первый полет опытного компаундного вертолета SB-1 Defiant.
The FLRAA is the replacement for the UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter; likely competitors include those based on the Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor (flying since 2017) and the Sikorsky Boeing SB-1 Defiant coaxial rotor compound helicopter.

A partnership between Boeing and Sikorsky is offering the SB>1 Defiant for the JMR technology and demonstrator programme.
Sikorsky, and its partner Boeing, are proving the scalability and tailoring of Sikorsky's X2 technology with the SB1 Defiant medium-class technology demonstrator. The SB1 is being developed for the US Army's Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstration programme to help define the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) programme. Technologies used on GE’s FATE engine will be available if a new centre-line engine is required for FVL.
