Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and LORD Corporation Announce Completion of Flight Demonstration Testing of the Hub Mounted Vibration Suppressor

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and LORD Corporation announced the successful completion of flight demonstration testing of the Hub Mounted Vibration Suppressor, a new technology aimed to reduce vibration on helicopters. The demonstration was part of an effort to address the challenge of crew fatigue and reduced equipment reliability and readiness that are caused by helicopter vibration. The two companies collaborated on the HMVS flight demonstration at the U.S. Army's Aviation Applied Technology Directorate at Fort Eustis, Virginia, in March. The flight test, completed in March 2014, was performed as part of the Active Rotor Component Demonstration program. The ARCD HMVS flight test was a joint effort among AATD, Sikorsky Aircraft and LORD Corporation. Flight testing on AATD's UH-60A BLACK HAWK helicopter included progression from a hover to 150 kts, auto-rotations and 60-degree angle-of-bank turns. Successful testing in the maneuvering conditions proved the HMVS technology suppressed vibration even in the most dynamic flight conditions. The HMVS cancels the large vibratory loads near the source of the vibration, which is the main rotor hub, thus keeping the loads from propagating into the airframe. In preliminary flight testing, the HMVS was found to reduce vibration significantly, with a 30% weight reduction.

LORD Corporation Introduces New Family of 10°/Hour Miniature Inertial Sensors

LORD Corporation has introduced the 3DM-GX4 family of miniature 10°/hour inertial sensors, utilizing high-performance MEMS sensor technology. The 3DM-GX4-15 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and 3DM-GX4-25 Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) feature tri-axial accelerometers and gyroscopes plus an onboard Adaptive Kalman Filter. In addition, the GX4-25 also includes tri-axial magnetometers and a pressure altimeter. The 3DM-GX4-45 Inertial Navigation System (INS) features an onboard pressure altimeter and tri-axial accelerometers, gyros, and magnetometers. It also includes an Extended Kalman Filter and GPS to generate optimal inertial and attitude estimates. The entire GX4 family is among the smallest and lightest in its class; the GX4-15 and -25 weigh only 16.5 grams, and the GX4-45 weighs 20 grams. Each sensor features dual processors, 10°/hour gyro bias stability, and is fully calibrated and temperature-compensated, helping each produce high performance under vibration and dynamic conditions. The 3DM-GX4 family has applications across a wide variety of industries and disciplines. They are ideally suited for camera and platform stabilization, antenna pointing, autopilot operation in lightweight vehicles, and industrial attitude and position sensing. The 3DM-GX4 family's architecture was designed to substantially eliminate common sources of error such as hysteresis induced by temperature changes and sensitivity to supply voltage variations. Gyro drift is extremely low and, through a variety of estimation techniques, the GX4 sensors can approach near-tactical performance in many applications. This cost-effective system is drop-in compatible with LORD MicroStrain's GX3 family. The 3DM-GX4-15, -25, and -45 are each available in a starter kit consisting of its respective module, RS-232 or USB communication and power cable, software CD, user manual, and quick-start guide.
