reduce helicopter vibration

NEW YORK, N.Y., Jan. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Shake'd Technologies, Inc., a New York based firm engaged in the development, delivery and support of advanced rotary wing technologies has teamed with Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Eitan Ben Eliyahu to support its efforts and contract management to deliver a unique solution to actively reduce helicopter vibration for rotary wing users in both the defense and commercial marketplace.

"Mr. Ben Eliyahu's extensive experience allows him to understand the potential of CDB and the critical benefits it provides to its users," said Eli Navon, CEO of Shake'd Technologies, Inc.

Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Eitan Ben-Eliyahu served as the Commander of the Israeli Air Force (IAF). During his 38 years in the IAF, Maj.-Gen. Ben Eliyahu was an active fighter pilot in Israel's various wars and campaigns. Mr. Ben Eliyahu has since retired from active duty but still remains engaged in aviation and defense industries. Mr. Ben Eliyahu holds an undergraduate degree in Economics and Business Administration from Tel Aviv's Bar Ilan University and a graduate degree in Strategy and International Relations from Tel Aviv University. He is also a graduate of Harvard University's Advanced Management Program.

"The unique ability of CDB to immediately reduce overall aircraft vibration is critical to the aircraft and the user," said Mr. Ben Eliyahu. "High vibrations can lead to instabilities during flight making control difficult and in some cases impossible. These conditions affect fuselage and dynamic component structural integrity including onboard avionics and navigation equipment that can lead to catastrophic results."

"The current overall vibration levels in helicopters remain significantly higher than in jet-engine aircraft. Rotary wing operators around the world have borne the cost of dynamic component failure long before predicted time before overhaul (TBO). Reducing these vibration levels is essential to helicopters safety and longevity," said Mr. Ben Eliyahu.

The concern of helicopter vibration is so serious that government agencies around the world including US FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and IHST (International Helicopter Safety Team) are implementing programs to have all certified rotorcraft to be serviced or to have installed some type of vibration solution, and health and monitoring system. These actions are now being taken due to a number of helicopter crashes caused by mechanical component failures that have resulted in fatalities. "These fatal accidents could have been prevented using technologies such as CDB," said Eli Navon, the company's CEO.

The innovative process of CDB goes far beyond passively monitoring aircraft vibrations. CDB discerns the root cause of vibration related problems and provides a dynamic solution to significantly and dramatically reduce it, thereby increasing component life, reducing operating costs, and increasing safety of flight and mission readiness. CDB is concerned with a holistic approach to the aircraft health, rather than the analysis of separate components.

This unique and cutting edge balancing system is accomplished by applying the solution provided by the CDB algorithmic software that emphasizes the importance of the dynamics of the whole drive train, and the interactive components. Depending on each aircraft vibration profile (AVP), the system provides tailored solutions to each individual aircraft. CDB tunes each aircraft every 200-flight hours and verifies its low vibration environment, which also provides a smooth and safe ride. Onboard monitoring systems can detect unexpected behavior in vibrations and diagnose trends.

Customized Dynamic Balancing (CDB) is fully developed and proven to be very effective in reducing operating and support (O&S) costs and increasing both aircraft availability and logistics supportability. The technology is transferable and can be integrated (in part or in full) with current monitoring systems. For more information visit the CDB website at .
