Abstract:

This report presents formal documentation of efforts and results of the cargo handling system segment of the Heavy Lift Helicopter HLH Advanced Technology Component ATC development program. The purpose of the HLHATC program was to minimize technical cost, and schedule risks associated with future HLH system research, development, test and evaluation RDTE and production programs. This was achieved by design, fabrication, and testing of specific ATC hardware in three critical air vehicle subsystems 1 Rotordrive system 2 Flight control system 3 Cargo handling system. The HLH cargo handling system described herein consists of tandem pneumatically driven hoists which provide high-speed in-flight stability with pitch attitude optimization and long-reach cargo acquistion and delivery for externally slung cargo a visual augmentation system to assist the load controlling crewman in acquiring cargo from a hover under conditions of darkness and partial visual obscuration and a static electricity discharge system to protect ground handlers from shock hazards.
