  8. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N11AT009

    Electric motors and generators have a long history of development, from the first halting steps to the intensive development in the 20th and 21st century. Consequently, motors and generators have become mature technologies that only see incremental improvements in performance. To achieve more than just incremental improvements in such parameters as power density and efficiency, a radical departure ...

  9. High Fidelity Helicopter Lag Damper Model for Comprehensive Rotor Analysis

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT010

    Helicopters with articulated rotor blades are subject to the well-known ground resonance where the rotor lag mode interacts, in an unstable fashion, with fuselage roll. To eliminate this ground resonance, both lag dampers and fuselage roll dampers are required. The Sikorsky UH-60 helicopter platform, which comprises the vast majority of utility rotorcraft used by the US Army and the Navy, relies u ...
