Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 18 June 2015

RMCI, a Huntsville-based company specializing in helicopter health monitoring technology and analysis, has opened an office in Derbyshire, England.

The new office, which will make it easier for the Alabama firm to reach customers in the U.K. and throughout Europe, will be staffed by Dr. Lesley Brealey, an acoustics specialist who has vast experience in the aviation industry, at both the technical and board levels.

We are on the leading edge of developing this technology, and demand for it is dramatically expanding around the globe, said RMCI Chief Executive, Ken Speaks. We are able to detect emerging faults in helicopter drivetrain systems well in advance of an incident that could cause collateral damage or catastrophic damage. Demand for this type of technology in safety critical systems - where it can save lives and reduce costs - is rapidly growing.

RMCI has also said it will open an office in Asia in 2016.

The Alabama companys technology and analytical capabilities allow customers, including the U.S. military, to monitor critical helicopter components such as transmissions, gearboxes, bearings, shafts and rotor systems. Its Expandable Rotorcraft Diagnostic System (XRDS) is a compact monitoring and diagnostic tool for operators of helicopter fleets.

RMCI was founded 9 years ago to support U.S. Army aviation with health monitoring and analysis for more than 3,000 helicopters of various types. RMCI also supports and has contributed technical papers for the International Helicopter Safety Team, the American Helicopter Society International and the Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology. Today, RMCI also has a growing civil aviation customer base.

With our electronics hardware development, we have been able to produce a system that is lighter weight, more powerful, more capable and more affordable than legacy health and usage monitoring systems, said Speaks, who is attending this weeks Paris Air Show on a business-development mission.
