Embodiments of systems and methods for enhancing the performance of rotary wing aircraft through reduced torque, noise and vibration are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method includes configuring the rotorcraft in a selected flight condition, communicating input signals to a control system operable to position sails coupled to tips of blades of a rotor assembly, processing the input signals according to a constraint condition to generate sail positional information, and transferring the sail positional information to the sail. Alternately, input signals...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for configuring a rotor blade in a rotary wing aircraft, comprising: selecting a flight condition; configuring the rotor blade to the selected flight condition; receiving a control input generated from a sensing device installed in the rotary wing aircraft; determining, based on the control input, an orientation of a sail coupled to a tip of the rotor blade, at least a portion of the sail extending beyond an axis that extends along a trailing edge of the rotor blade to an outboard edge of the sail; and moving the sail to ...
