Curtiss-Wright Controls, of Charlotte, N.C., signed a contract with AgustaWestland to create a custom vibration management system (VMS) computer for its rotorcraft technology validation program (RTVP) demonstrator.

Curtiss-Wright said the VMS computer will be low power with high processing capability. The VMS computer, featuring custom I/O and conduction-cooled components, will provide the processing to control vibrations within the main rotor head to reduce the vibration in the airframe.

It will be designed and manufactured at the Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems business unit in Santa Clarita, Calif.
