PURPOSE

The set of gears for storing and transporting a helicopter is designed for:

  • storing and supplying of special items;
  • transporting a shipborne helicopter with mass up to 12.5 t from take-off and landing area into hangar and backwards;
  • opening and closing the hangar doors.

DESIGN

As distinct from gears for transporting a helicopter being installed aboard ships of various projects built in 1970-90, the offered gear for transporting a helicopter is adapted to constantly changing external loads on a helicopter during its transportation (wind, ship list up to 12.5° and trim up to 4°, deck icing, inertial loads, etc.). This is ensured by automatic self-adjustment, introduction of a new principle involving maintenance of constant speed and tension not less than 3 t without any slackening a hauling rope (patent No. 2141435) at a helicopter transporting.

The new principle allows to stop helicopters for loading over a magazine with high degree of accuracy, that is up to 10-30 mm.

The device is also provided with “Manoeuvring” mode allowing to turn a helicopter to 180 ° and more, if manoeuvring on a ship deck is necessary.
