The helicopter is being developed by Kamov and manufactured by the Arsenyev-based Progress aircraft company (both companies are Russian Helicopters subsidiaries).

The development of the Ka-62 began in 1992. It  was designed as a civilian model of a multipurpose military transport helicopter Ka-60.

The Ka-62 is fitted with two French-made Ardiden 3G 1,680 h.p. engines made by Turbomeca. Their modular design ensures high reliability, heightened ease of operation, and low fuel use. The helicopter is also equipped with a glass cockpit developed by the Russian company Transas.

The Ka-62 is built to a single-rotor design with a multi-blade anti-torque rotor ducted into the vertical tail fin. It has a five-bladed main rotor, enclosed tail rotor, secondary hydraulics circuit, heavy-duty wheeled landing gear, strengthened fuselage and mounting attachments for major components, as well as shock-absorbent seats for passengers and crew.

The airframe and propeller blades will be over 50% made of polymeric composite materials.

The Ka-62 is designed for cargo transportation, medevac and search and rescue operations, and can also be used in the oil and gas sector and for corporate purposes.
