Hi,

During the 1970s The Kaman had many programs,such as CCR circulation
control rotor concept,this project was concerned with a slotted rotor blade
through which compressed and blown to enhance aerodynamic performance
and improve the lift characteristics of the retraeting blade,a controllable
twist rotor CTR,dynamic anti-resonant vibration isolator,glassfibre tail
rotor blade concept,elastic pitch beam tail rotor and fan-in-fuselage
concept.

And I am asking if that programs translated into a really projects or not ?.

Hi,

At the meantime a little of kaman concepts translated
into a really aircraft or RPV,just as Kaman STAPL (Ship
Tethered Aerial Platform).
