FN 6217#AMRDEC CSD HDC Edwards_AAAA04-12.pptxThe AMRDEC mission is two-fold:First, the AMRDEC is focused on conducting focused research, exploratory and advanced technological development in order to meet the needs of the Future Force. Second, the AMRDEC is committed to providing one-stop life cycle engineering and scientific support for aviation, missile and unmanned systems platforms.

AMRDEC has directorates and facilities located across the country. AMRDEC Headquarters are located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, but we also have facilities and personnel working in Virginia, California and Texas. This chart highlights some of the key functions at each location. For example, the Aviation Applied Technology Directorate located in Ft. Eustis, Virginia specializes in Aviation R&D, Systems Engineering and Special Operations Forces Support.

Split Torque Face Gear Transmission

Fielding began in FY12Fielding begins in FY20Approved for public release; distribution unlimited. FN 6217#AMRDEC CSD HDC Edwards_AAAA04-12.pptxDuring the RDS-21 program, a split torque face gear transmission was developed and demonstrated. This split torque main transmission has transitioned to the Block 3 Apache, which is planned to be fielded beginning in FY12. This face gear design allowed the main transmission to go from 3 stages down to 2 stages. It also allowed the aircraft to go from being rated at 2828hp to 3400hp, due to the improved gear load capability of the split torque design. The face gear transmission also improved vertical rate of climb and reliability.

Technologies currently being developed under the Enhanced Rotorcraft Drive System program are planned to transition into the Block 3 Lot 7 Apache. The most significant of these technologies is an improved tail drive system. This improved tail drive system includes near-net forged gears in the tail gearbox and advanced C61 gear steel in the intermediate gearbox. Both tail and intermediate gearboxes are manufactured using an investment casting technique to reduce the housing weights. The shaft between these two gearboxes is composite, and has an integrated coupling. This reduces weight and the parts count, by not needing separate couplings. These technologies allow the Block III Lot 7 aircraft to be rated at 3850hp, reduce the overall noise levels, and reduce weight.

The technologies being developed under the Future Advanced Rotorcraft Drive System are planned to transition into an OH-58 Upgrade Program. For improved gear load capacity, were developing technologies: gear materials such as Ferrium C64, manufacturing processes such as cavitation peening, and improving the gear geometry itself with optimized root profiles and tip modifications. For improved bearings, were developing technologies such as: simplified bearings for reducing the number of bearing parts and weight, ceramic bearings, and reduced weight bearing liners. For improving the drive systems lubrication system, were developing technologies such as: advanced lubrication techniques, and passive cooling systems. For reducing maintenance, were developing technologies such as: non-metallic debris detection, fluid condition monitoring, and joint integrity monitoring. These technologies allow the aircraft to meet the 6k/95 degree at 5500lb aircraft requirement, as well as reduce costs, and improve the diagnostic capabilities.

15Missions SystemsMajor Thrust: Develop and demonstrate operator interfaces, scalable effect weapons, precision time-sensitive delivery, and multipurpose sensors, integrated for the mission; Improve safety and effectiveness of rotorcraft pilots in degraded visual environments (DVE); manage high workload cockpits with adaptive aiding and autonomy to more efficiently & effectively control, manage, and interact with manned and unmanned aviation assets.Major Identified Gap: Current subsystems have limited or inadequate capabilities, that result in operator overload, collateral damage, inefficient application of effects and excessive sensors due to federated systems, ASE subsystems have limited or lacking capabilities, result in excessive parasitic weight, are not well integrated, and do not take advantage of advanced technologies.

NDARCMission: Lead multidisciplinary design of advanced vertical lift aviation systems for manned and unmanned platforms, enable the enterprise to formulate new CONOPS, establish feasible requirements, guide informed technology investments by incorporating technologies in system synthesis across all Focus Areas, and satisfy materiel solutions analysis and development milestones. Technology Objectives: Enhance Design CertaintyExpand Assessment CapabilityImprove Timeliness of the Design CycleAVN Rev Guidance/Format 13 Nov 08 .ppt#21It is vital that the government maintain a system design function for many reasons. No technology makes a contribution to an aircraft until it is integrated as a part of the complete system. The benefit of individual technologies is often a function of the design approach associated with the larger system. The design activity looks at the cost, weight, performance, and sustainment aspects of individual technologies and allows the community to assess the potential contributions in light of impact it will have on all aspects of operation. Additionally, pursuit of specific aircraft designs reveal aspects which cry out for innovative, lightweight, low drag, reliable solutions. This sharpens the research focus of the community and leads to higher impact technology investments. The process of designing aircraft reveals the capabilities and weaknesses of the tools and methods presently available to do so and generates its own research to advance the capability and accuracy of the process. These tools and methods are broadly shared and exchanged to the benefit of the military/industrial base and form the basis of a common assessment of anticipated performance. The government's designers use their tools and expertise to assist and assess the industry designs in support of program source selection and execution. The government design activity builds tools, methods, and expertise that makes the government a smarter buyer of aircraft systems and technologies and a better investor across the research portfolio.
