Abstract
Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with the University of Maryland, and our commercialization partner, Bell Helicopter Textron proposes to develop and prototype an innovative Active Conformal Camber Actuator (ACCA) Technology for improved rotor performance. The ACCA effectively consists of a piezohydraulic pump coupled to hydraulic artificial muscle (HAM) actuators that deform a honeycomb structure covered with a flexible skin. The result is a solid state piezoceramic actuator with both high force and high stroke capability that is ideally suited to the force and stroke requirements for adaptive camber control.
