AERIAL REFUELING PRODUCTS
We develop and manufacture aerial refueling digital hydraulic actuation system products.
Examples include our proprietary and patented Hydraulic Motor Assembly, digital Drive System Controller and Gearbox assembly, all of which are successfully integrated on the Boeing KC-46 Pegasus for hose and drogue air-to-air refueling.
HYDRAULIC MOTOR ASSEMBLY
The Federal Industries HMA is patented and proprietary Electrohydraulic Variable Displacement Drive System (VDDS) technology used in hose and drogue hose reels and fuel pumps for airborne aerial refueling applications
DRIVE SYSTEM CONTROLLER
The Federal Industries DSC is a patented and proprietary digital electronic controller and software solution used for the control, management and health monitoring of VDDS hose and drogue hose reel systems and VDDS fuel pumps for airborne aerial refueling applications
GEAR BOX ASSEMBLY
The Federal Industries gearbox is patented and proprietary planetary gear train technology used in driving hose and drogue hose reels for airborne aerial refueling applications, both for new and upgrade modifications
HYDRAULIC HOSE REEL DRIVE SYSTEM
The Federal Industries HHRDS is a patented and proprietary drive system technology initially developed and currently used in airborne aerial refueling applications for hose reel and fuel pump drives. The Variable Displacement Drive System (VDDS) technology used in the HHRDS is also applicable for aerial refueling stores/pods, aircraft fuel system boost, transfer and tanker refueling pumps.
