초록

An in-flight refueling system and method are provided for facilitating the emergency separation of the components of a probe and drogue in-flight refueling. The in-flight refueling system and method provides a fuse device capable of being installed between, for instance, an elongate hose configured to trail from a tanker aircraft, and a drogue connected to, and in fluid communication with, the elongate hose. The fuse device may be configured to separate in response to a separating force such that the drogue may separate from the elongate hose prior to th...

청구항

What is claimed is: 1. An in-flight refueling system comprising: a tanker aircraft; an elongate hose having a first end carried by the tanker aircraft and a drogue operably engaged with and in fluid communication with an opposing second end thereof; a fuse device operably engaged between the second end of the elongate hose and the drogue so as to allow fluid communication therebetween, the fuse device being configured to disengage the drogue from the elongate hose in response to a separating force experienced thereby, such that the elongate hose is sepa...
