Cobham to supply KC 390 aerial refuelling probe
Cobham will design and supply the aerial refuelling probe for the KC-390 Tactical Military Transport and Tanker Aircraft following its selected by Embraer Defense and Security for the contract.
This selection follows Embraer’s recently announced contract award to Cobham for the development and supply of the KC-390 wing-mounted aerial refuelling pods.
According to Cobham, the contract with Embraer for the aerial refuelling probe will cover design and supply activities in support of the KC 390 development programme, as well options for the supply of the equipment to the production aircraft. Cobham believes its ‘robust yet light weight fixed probe solution ideally matches the high fuel rate delivery demands of the KC-390’.
