Abstract:

This report covers the flight test of a three-axis Hydrofluidic Stability Augmentation System HYSAS coupled with a completely independent parallel attitude and heading hold for a CH-54B helicopter. The design goal was to evaluate the performance of the CH-54B Automatic Flight Control System AFCS with the electronic SAS replaced with a fluidic SAS and to establish the technical base for a fluidic inner loop and electronic outer loop control system.
