Program goals are to reduce weight and noise and to increase life and reliability. This paper reviews significant advances i technology for gears and transmissions and describes the experimental facilities at NASA Lewis for helicopter transmission testing. A description of each of the rigs is presented along with some significant results from the experiments.
