  • Fly-by-wire work nets prize for NRC Aerospace

    News | 13 Jun 2005 23:00

    Work to develop advanced fly-by-wire flight control laws for the Sikorsky H-92 helicopter has won the National Research Council of Canada Institute for Aerospace Research (NRC Aerospace) an award from the American Helicopter Society.<BR><BR>The Gruppo Agusta International Helicopter Fellowship award was presented jointly to Sikorsky and NRC Aerospace following work to introduce automatic load limiting control on the H-92. The advanced control laws were implemented using a Bell 412 in-flight simulator. Tests showed significant reductions in main rotor hub loads during aggressive manoeuvring with no effect on pilot handling qualities.<BR><BR>Tests use a fourth-generation fly-by-wire helicopter simulator which modifies the helicopter's dynamic characteristics. Flight tests were conducted in two phases with in-flight optimisation of the flight control laws being carried out at the NRC Aerospace facility in Ottawa, Canada. This was followed by flight test evaluations by 10 pilots at the Sikhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Fly-by-wire-work-nets-prize-for-NRC-Aerospace-199379/

    <p>Ottawa's maritime helicopter choice could lead to court action as losing team complains about process</p> <p>The selection of Sikorsky's H-92 to meet Canada's Maritime Helicopter Programme (MHP) requirement has prompted a controversy that could drag the selection process through the courts. The losing Team Cormorant is considering legal action, charging that the selection process was weighted against it, while the <I>Toronto Globe and Mail </I>claims Ottawa was forced to select the H-92 because Team Cormorant's AgustaWestland EH101 had been disqualified on technical grounds.</p> <p>Team Cormorant has for the past few years alleged that government officials wanted to avoid political embarrassment by discounting the EH101 from the MHP contract, as Ottawa had paid a C$500 million ($380 million) cancellation fee after scrapping an earlier contract for the helicopter placed by a previous administration.</p> <p>Announcing the decision on 23 July, defence minister Bill Graham said: "Thehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Canada-flies-into-selection-storm-185370/
