Abstract:

The U.S. Army Heavy Lift Helicopter Advanced Technology Component program required the design, development, and feasibility demonstration of an electrohydraulic flight control system. This volume details the evolution of an automatic flight control system AFCS, operating by means of a direct electrical linkage. AFCS software and hardware development and testing are discussed. The results of flight clearance testing and in-flight evaluations of AFCS control laws are examined.
