Moog to provide actuation system for Boeing Next-Gen KC-46 Tanker

Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) announced today that its Aircraft Controls segment has received an order from Boeing for the refueling boom actuation system on the KC-46 aircraft. The United States Air Force recently selected Boeing to build the next generation KC-46 aerial refueling tanker to replace 179 of the service's KC-135 tankers.

Moog will provide the design, integration and qualification of the complete actuation system used to extend, retract and guide the refueling boom during in-flight refueling operations. Moog's system will include fly-by-wire actuators to provide precision control of the boom's Rudder and Elevator flight surfaces. Moog will also provide the telescoping and hoist actuators used to extend and retract the entire boom.

"We are delighted that Boeing has selected Moog to play a role on this high profile program," said Tim Baptist, Aircraft Group Vice President responsible for Moog's Military Aircraft Sector. "Moog has supplied advanced controls for critical flight surfaces on US Department of Defense applications for the last 60 years, and we are honored to get the opportunity to continue to supply products that deliver superior performance and reliability to our military forces."
