SALUS (Stabilizing Aerial Loads Utility System) is an operationally unobtrusive reaction-wheel stabilization assembly suited for harsh environments.
Medical evacuation, search and rescue, and cargo transport missions require that helicopter hoist operations be performed in the
face of disadvantageous environmental conditions. Hoisted objects tend to spin while being lifted
under a helicopter due to rotor downwash. Spinning is a potentially catastrophic event that leads to
evacuee nausea, disorientation, and vertigo, and can be life-threatening.
