The EPCS replaces the HS 54H60 mechanical valve housing control and syncrophaser to achieve logistics savings. It is designed to provide a higher level of reliability and to simplify the propeller control calibration. This control architecture was also used on the NP2000 eight-blade propeller now being fielded on the E-2C aircraft." This is from a 2005 HS news release. I was wondering if anyone from the Navy side had any feedback with using the EPCS, especially any secondary benefits like component and systems reliability improvements, etc. I know th eEPCS has been discussed in the past but I am seeing if there is any new data out there.
