Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INDICATING PRESSURE IN AERIAL REFUELING ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
An aerial refueling assembly includes, for example, a pressure transducer (260), a processor (230), and one or more light sources (200). The processor (230) is coupled to the pressure transducer (260). The one or more light sources (200) are coupled to the processor (230). The pressure transducer (260) is configured to sense a fuel pressure inside the aerial refueling assembly and to provide a signal that is indicative of the sensed fuel pressure inside the aerial refueling assembly. The processor (230) is configured to receive the signal and to cause the one or more light sources (200) to flash in a manner that relates to the sensed fuel pressure.
