Co-developed with North Carolina-based corporation Lord and partly funded by the US Army Aviation Applied Technology Directorate, HMVS works by controlling vibration at its source - the rotor hub and blades.
As with the aviation propeller, wind turbine pitch control is achieved by either a hydraulic or an electrical mechanism mounted in the rotor hub assembly, to rotate all blades simultaneously about their axes.
