Our Company

Active Vibration Control Systems Contact Us

Active Vibration Control SystemsLORD Active Vibration Control Systems (AVCS) reduce vibration in the helicopter fuselage generated by the main rotor. Our AVCS provides state-of-the-art, patented algorithms that control steady state and transient vibration, even during start up. In the system, accelerometers measure aircraft vibration levels and signals are sent to a centralized computer. The computer interprets the signals and sends commands to force generators located throughout the aircraft. These force generators create "anti-vibration" that stops the progression of vibration due to the main rotor.


AVCSLORD offers both turn-key AVCS as well as AVCS components, adapting our product offerings to suit your specific vibration control needs. For more information, download a copy of the AVCS product bulletin.
