GKN Aerospace will showcase its latest fuel systems and emergency flotation systems at Aero India 2015, held from 18-22 February 2015.
GKN will display a flexible fuel cell for military rotorcraft alongside a scaled model of the B212 helicopter fitted with a GKN Aerospace emergency flotation system.
For the military market, GKN Aerospace’s fuel system technology offers 7.62mm to 20mm round protection to all types of fuel containment systems.
This ballistically tolerant technology is typically integrated at the design phase of a vehicle but can also be retro-fitted or externally fitted to ensure fuel supply is maintained throughout front line operations - and has been proved effective in service.
GKN Aerospace supplies turnkey packages from fuel storage to engine feed, as well as flexible fuel bladders, crashworthy and self-sealing systems, rotationally moulded tanks and range extender tanks.
