ZF Luftfahrttechnik (ZFL) and Sikorsky have teamed up to develop a new electrical rotor control system (LIBRAS™) that provides primary flight control and individual blade control for vibration and noise reduction, power savings, and additional performance enhancements for helicopters in a single system. A dSPACE system is being used to read and process sensor data from the rotor head and control the system to help identify and optimize control functions.
