Edwards team creates aerial refueling test tool to save time, money
Members from engineering and technical support company JT4 and the 418th Flight Test Squadron use the newly created Receiver Simulation Tool on a KC-10. The RST is a ground-based system designed to simulate events that happen during aerial refueling between receiver aircraft and new tankers such as the KC-46 Pegasus, Australian KC-30 and Italian 767. The team has been testing the RST with legacy tankers such as the KC-10 and KC-135 to get baseline data before testing on the new aerial refuelers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Brad White)
