Research Project: Helicopter Off-Shore Operations – New Flotation Systems
The over-arching objective of this research study is to provide answers to technical issues regarding the feasibility of providing a step change in occupant survivability following capsize of a helicopter through the introduction of an air pocket scheme utilising flotation units mounted high up on the helicopter fuselage.
Main aspects of the research:
— inadvertent deployment in flight of the high-mounted inflatable flotation units,
— potential degradation of high-mounted stowed inflatable flotation units,
— possible requirement for external fuselage fairings to accommodate the stowage of additional high-mounted flotation units,
— avoidance of damage to high-mounted inflating/inflated flotation unit(s),
— overall integration issues.
