Abstract : This program is intended to provide the technology necessary for the integration of hydraulic/mechanical interfaces so that rotary actuators may be utilized for fast response, long endurance applications, such as vehicle flight control surface actuation. This is an exploratory program for the investigation of a unique rotary hydromechanical actuator, The Bendix Dynavector Actuator. The rotary actuator technology is demonstrated by the fabrication and life endurance testing of an Experimental Model Dynavector Actuator designed to meet an assumed set of flight test performance requirements.
