Abstract
Recent advances in available electromechanical actuator (EMA) technology have created the opportunity to replace many hydraulic actuation systems on board aerial vehicles with advantageous "all-electric" flight control systems. This replacement of hydraulics with electrics offers the potential for life-cycle cost savings, performance enhancement and reductions in the maintenance efforts aboard US Army aerial systems. This proposal outlines the adaptation of a novel form of industrial EMA controller technology for use in the demanding application of rotorcraft flight control systems. This proposed effort leverages the latest advances in electro-mechanical componentry and makes use of the proposing party's significant design experience in embedded electronics for demanding applications and technology base in the area of all-electric actuation systems.
