    Abstract: An example of a rotor-state determining method for a rotor system includes, by a flight control computer, collecting data from a first sensor positioned on a first component of the rotorcraft, wherein the first sensor is isolated from movement of a rotor blade, collecting data from a second sensor positioned on a second component of the rotor system, wherein the second sensor detects movement of the rotor blade, filtering the data collected by the first sensor to remove noise from the data collected by the first sensor, filtering the data collected by the second sensor to remove noise from the data collected by the second sensor, calculating a difference between the filtered first data and the filtered second data to determine a parameter of the rotor blade, and responsive to the motion of the rotor blade, taking a corrective action.
