Bell And Moog Collaborate For On-Demand Mobility Flight Control Actuation System

Teaming Agreement Signed For Development Of The Technology

A teaming agreement between Bell Helicopter and Moog for the development of the Flight Control Actuation System (FCAS) to support Bell’s vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft and on-demand mobility (ODM) solutions.

“Bell continues to identify solutions and teammates that will achieve new possibilities together,” said Bell’s Scott Drennan, vice president of Innovation. “Within this collaboration, Moog will ensure an advanced, fully integrated actuation system which will provide a safe, reliable and affordable solution for our aircraft.”

Moog’s technologies will bring the design and integration of aircraft actuation systems for flight control to Bell’s VTOL aircraft. Moog’s experience allows for systems that meet cost, performance, weight, and reliability requirements. "We are absolutely delighted that Moog has been selected by Bell to partner on this exciting program to explore and develop the on-demand mobility market," said Ralph Elbert, group vice president & GM Moog Aircraft. "Moog’s role will include providing the all-electric, fly-by-wire actuators and electronics used to direct and control the aircraft’s propulsion system and aero-surfaces.”

In this collaboration, Bell will lead the design, development and production of the VTOL systems. Moog will lead the design and development of the flight control actuation systems which includes architecture, hardware and software needed for air vehicle flight control actuation management.

As previously announced, Safran will provide the hybrid propulsion systems and Garmin will integrate the avionics and the vehicle management computer (VMC) systems; EPS will provide the energy storage systems, and Thales will lead the flight controls system.
