Cobham receives orders for V-22 refuelling probes under latest multiyear deal

Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by Boeing and Cobham in June 2013, Cobham has recently secured the first two annual Lots for the supply of Refuelling Probes for the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft in support of the second V-22 multiyear award from the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

Capable of withstanding severe operating environments, Cobham's refuelling probe is an inherent feature of the Bell Boeing V-22, and is fundamental to the aircraft's self-deployment capability and operational range. The unique, patented telescoping mechanism extends the probe tip beyond the Osprey's nose, and fully retracts into the fuselage. These characteristics provide the aircraft with improved aerodynamics and a reduced footprint.

The refuelling probe is one of Cobham's ship set on the V-22 aircraft, which also includes antennas, aircrew restraints, emergency landing gear blow down equipment and on-board Oxygen and inert gas generation systems.

Cobham Mission Equipment vice president Iain Gibson said: “The Cobham probe provides a proven aerial refuelling solution which further extends the mission performance of the V-22. We are committed to providing Boeing with our ongoing support for the programme.”

Probes will be fitted on future US Marine Corps MV-22 models and US Air Force Special Operations Command CV-22 models.
