Bell’s EDAT Bags -Best of What’s New in Aerospace- Award

Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. company, announced that Popular Science recognised Bell’s Electrically Distributed Anti-Torque (EDAT) innovation as the winner of its “Best of What’s New Award” in the Aerospace category for 2020. This marks the third consecutive year Bell has won in this category. Bell’s Autonomous Pod Transport (APT) 70 was awarded in 2019 and the Bell V-280 Valor Joint Multi Role technology demonstrator won in 2018. This continued recognition demonstrates the company’s determined effort to pursue innovative solutions to push the boundaries of vertical lift.
Bell’s EDAT is the company’s latest commercial innovation, unveiled in February 2020. The system is composed of four small fans within a tail rotor shroud in an offset two-by-two pattern. Each of the rotors contains four blades, and they are powered by four separate motors with the electrical energy provided through generators driven by the turbine engines.
This innovation provides enhancements to reduction in noise pollution compared to an aircraft with a conventional tail rotor as well as lower operational and maintenance costs. Throughout the year, Bell’s EDAT innovation has garnered interest as the first technology of its kind in the rotorcraft industry, challenging the norms for aircraft noise output, safety and electrical distribution.
