Wireless Rotor Head Power and Data Bus
This proposal addresses the opportunity to develop an optimized power and data bus for aircraft rotor loads monitoring by offering an innovative solution that delivers high power density energy harvesting and reliable delivery of large volumes of data from a rotating frame to a fixed frame. The system non-intrusively harvests energy from the main rotor and wirelessly communicates loads data to a HUMS data aggregator. This innovative development work will be completed through collaboration between KCF Technologies and its partners. This partnership provides a high degree of capability in helicopter wireless communication, energy harvesting, and fiber optic strain sensors.
