초록

An Interoperable aerial refueling method enables tanker aircraft configured with a boom and receiver refueling system to refuel an aircraft configured for the probe and drogue refueling system. In one embodiment, a receptacle, coupled to a refueling drogue, is configured to fluidly receive a terminal portion of a refueling boom is. A retainer is coupled to an aircraft that removably retains the receptacle when the aircraft is refueling another aircraft configured to directly engage the boom. The receptacle releases the receptacle when the terminal portio...

청구항

What is claimed is: 1. A method of in-flight refueling of aircraft, comprising: providing fuel to a first receiving aircraft by coupling the first receiving aircraft to a terminal end of a refueling boom coupled to a tanker aircraft; engaging a receptacle of a hose and drogue assembly with a valve positioned on the terminal end of the refueling boom; and while the tanker aircraft is in flight, configuring the refueling boom of the tanker aircraft to supply fuel to a second receiving aircraft having a refueling probe operable to receive fuel from a refue...
