The Combat Search and Rescue-X (CSAR-X) and Combat Rescue Tanker Replacement (CRT-X) programs are both critical to the future of combat search and rescue, according to U.S. Air Force Col. Steve Kirkpatrick, commander of the 920th Rescue Wing at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. Kirkpatrick, speaking July 25 at the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement’s Joint Search and Rescue conference in Arlington, Va., said he is a “big believer” in both programs. “Both of them are much needed programs for the future of CSAR,” Kirkpatrick said. The current HH-60 Pave Hawk CSAR helicopter, which the CSAR-X competition is due to replace, is “very power limited” and often forces crews deployed overseas to take guns and fuel off their aircraft before they fly their missions, he said. Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Sikorsky are all competing for the CSAR-X award, which could be awarded as early as late August.
