Actively Controlled Flap

 


 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

The Actively Controlled Flap is a success technology of an active control systems aiming to reduce vibration and/or noise in helicopters, and it received great attention form the rotorcraft industry.

 

The SRS’ Actively Controlled Flap underwent an evolution process eliminating tens of parts and receiving a new 3rd Generation design. The new design simplifies its installation on the blade and improves performance in comparison to its predecessors. The unique new concept has no moving parts and is externally mounted, thus allowing easy maintenance and replacement.
