Helicopter Support Inc. (HSI), a support and distribution company of Sikorsky Aerospace Services, signed a memorandum of understanding with Goodrich Corp. to collaboratively promote an advanced aircraft maintenance solution to the worldwide rotary aircraft market. The Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) developed by Goodrich’s Sensors and Integrated Systems business is a series of networked diagnostic sensors that continuously and comprehensively monitor the mechanical performance of the entire aircraft. This system provides real-time data that enhances predictive maintenance. Integrating the HUMS data with Sikorsky Aerospace Services’ OEM installation expertise and support capabilities enables a proactive maintenance system that lowers operating costs and increases fleet availability.
