Triumph Group has received a contract from Boeing to supply hydraulic system components for the MQ-25 unmanned aerial refuelling programme, the company announced on 4 April.

Under the contract, Triumph Integrated Systems will provide components for the hydraulic systems used in the aircraft's landing gear and arresting systems.

The MQ-25 is the US Navy's carrier-based UAS being built by Boeing. The company is to deliver four MQ-25 aircraft to the US Navy for initial operational capability by 2024.

Frank Dubey, executive vice president for Triumph Integrated Systems, said: 'Triumph Group is proud to be selected by Boeing to support the US Navy's unmanned aerial refueling programme and provide a variety of

hydraulic subsystems used in the flight controls, landing gear, aerial refueling and arresting systems of the MQ-25. These systems play a critical role in ensuring consistent operational performance of the aircraft to support the mission. We look forward to working with Boeing on the MQ-25 programme through to production.'
