Research Institution

Nielsen Engineering & Research (NEAR) is proposing to develop an innovative actively stabilized drogue refueling system (ASDRS) based on their CDC7 technology. The proposed drogue system is reliable, durable (minimizing FOD potential), lightweight, compatible with existing AAR refueling systems, and requires no receiver modifications. During the Phase II effort, NEAR will rely on numerical analysis and full-scale wind tunnel testing to develop and refine the ASDRS.
