UAVOS, the unmanned systems manufacturer, announced its next-generation composite main rotor blades to be installed on helicopters with up to 140 kg take-off mass and rotor diameter of 3200 mm (126″). Composite blades are improved by gluing an all-metal edging into the leading edge. As a result of the new design upgrades, not only has the aerodynamic performance of the blades been enhanced but also wear resistance has increased under severe weather conditions. With the new design the operating life of the blade has doubled.
After many hours of design, testing, and analysis by UAVOS’s engineers and clients, a new modification of the main rotor blades with an increased life has been built. Not only are the new rotor blades intended to significantly increase aircraft performance at high elevations and temperatures but they also increase fuel efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. The UAVOS’ blades are fully interchangeable and carry a life-limit of 2,600 hours.
