Air refuelling system
CESA supplies important electromechanical systems for the Airbus Defence & Space ARBS MRTT refuelling system programme known as Tail Boom.
These systems are: the hoist system, which raises the boom when the flaperon is not aerodynamically effective; and the ERA system which extends and draws in the boom in a controlled manner in order to adapt it to any operating condition.
In addition to these 2 electromechanical systems, CESA supplies the stress measurement system (BRSU) fitted at the boom tip. This equipment provides data on the stress being received through the boom and the fluid pressures during contact.
