Lockheed Martin (LMT) is developing a "universal, highly adaptable and affordable mission equipment package" for the U.S. Army's next-generation helicopters.

In plain English, the package will consist of cockpit equipment, electronics and weapons that will be able to be used on any chopper designed for the new program.

The package is designed to save money and make upgrades easier. To keep costs and risk low, Lockheed hopes to leverage the billions of dollars invested in the F-35 program and other weapons systems (PR)
