Composer Suk-Jun Kim invited people to hum
a song that reminded them of their childhood and record it at a humming booth set up at Seventeen Belmont Street.
This partnership, which is the first Hums
agreement in the region, is another way of expanding our comittment.
Dutch and British Chinooks already have Smiths and Teledyne HUMS
that monitor vibration and other operating parameters and log the actual operating hours accumulated by transmissions and other parts.
By continuously monitoring aircraft flight data and vibration at numerous points throughout the drivetrain and pinpointing mechanical faults before they become catastrophic failures, HUMS
provides helicopter operators with actionable information that enables them to anticipate mechanical failures and make anticipatory maintenance decisions, before the issues arise.
Army has issued Modification Work Order (MWO 1-1520-251-50-05) for the IAC 1209 MSPU - HUMS
approving the system for installation on all 750 U.
is a condition-based maintenance (CBM) system which monitors the health and usage of an aircraft's drivetrain to addresses any maintenance and safety problems.
By continuously monitoring vibration at numerous points throughout the drivetrain and pinpointing mechanical faults before they become catastrophic failures, HUMS
provides actionable information that allows the Coast Guard to anticipate mechanical failures and make anticipatory maintenance decisions.
monitors the health of critical aircraft systems such as engines, transmissions, bearings and rotors through real time analysis.
Tony Wurmel, general manager of Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems in Vergennes said, "This award highlights the value that the Goodrich HUMS
brings in lowering operating and maintenance costs while enhancing safety for the Army's Black Hawk fleet.
With more than 400 HUMS
and two million flight hours, Smiths is the world leader in the supply of HUMS
for both military and commercial helicopter applications," commented Dr.
units are a win for Vermont, the Department of Defense, and our men and women in uniform.
IAC provides more HUMS
for the world's largest helicopter operator (U.
IAC is uniquely qualified to provide the 160th SOAR with technologically advanced HUMS
and diagnostic solutions.
Army has granted the following Air Worthiness Releases (AWR) or "maintenance credits" for aircraft equipped with IAC HUMS
Smiths' single box HUMS
will provide increased aircraft safety, availability, reliability, maintainability and Life Cycle Costs.
