Title (EN) TELESCOPING STOWAGE TUBE AND ROTATING HOSE REEL FOR CARGO BAY REFUELING SYSTEM
(FR) TUBE DE RANGEMENT TÉLESCOPIQUE ET DÉVIDOIR ROTATIF POUR SYSTÈME DE RAVITAILLEMENT DE SOUTE
Abstract:
(EN) An aerial refueling system for refueling a receiver aircraft in flight comprises a hose reel assembly mounted onto a fuel supply aircraft's fuselage. The hose reel assembly has a rotatable drum defined by an outside diameter. A hose is wound around the drum and has an outlet end with a drogue affixed thereto. A telescoping stowage tube stores the outlet end of the hose and the drogue when the system is not in use and guides the outlet end and the drogue toward the receiver aircraft when the system is in use. The telescoping stowage tube has a forward end configured to be mounted on the hose reel assembly to receive the hose from the drum and an aft end adapted to be mounted to the door. As a result, the telescoping stowage tube may be extendable between a retracted stowed position and an extended position for refueling.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de ravitaillement en vol destiné au ravitaillement d'un aéronef récepteur en vol qui comprend un ensemble dévidoir monté sur un fuselage d'un aéronef d'alimentation en carburant. L'ensemble dévidoir comprend un tambour rotatif défini par un diamètre extérieur. Un tuyau est enroulé autour du tambour et comporte une extrémité de sortie pourvue d'un cône de ravitaillement fixé à celle-ci. Un tube de rangement télescopique stocke l'extrémité de sortie du tuyau et le cône de ravitaillement lorsque le système n'est pas utilisé, et guide l'extrémité de sortie et le cône de ravitaillement vers l'aéronef récepteur lorsque le système est utilisé. Le tube de rangement télescopique comprend une extrémité avant conçue pour être montée sur l'ensemble dévidoir pour recevoir le tuyau provenant du tambour et une extrémité arrière conçue pour être montée sur la porte. Par conséquent, le tube de rangement télescopique peut être déployé entre une position de stockage rétractée et une position déployée pour le ravitaillement.
