AMETEK PDS Hydraulic Pump Motor for T-X jet trainer aircraft.

Parker Aerospace selects AMETEK PDS for T-X Hydraulic Pump Motor

AMETEK PDS has been selected by Parker Aerospace Hydraulic Systems Division Europe (HSDE) to provide the Hydraulic Pump Motor for the new U.S. Airforce next generation T-X jet trainer aircraft, which will be jointly produced by the Boeing and Saab companies.

Parker is a leading provider of fully integrated hydraulic systems, advanced hydromechanical and electromechanical subsystems and components. The company has a broad experience in value-added systems design, integration and support. Parker's hydraulics have long played a role in advanced military aircraft, supplying the power and control needed for helicopters, fighters, transports, UAVs and missiles, including the Joint Strike Fighter Program and now the T-X trainer.

The next generation T-X trainer, offered by Boeing and Swedish partner Saab, was selected in September 2018 to replace the long-trusted Northrop Grumman T-38 Talon for U.S. Airforce pilot training. The new T-X is a single-engine advanced jet trainer with a twin tail for enhanced stability and control, tandem seating and retractable landing gear. The trainer is powered by a General Electric F404 afterburning turbofan engine with in-flight refueling capability. First deliveries to Joint Base San Antonio- Randolph, Texas are expected in 2023 and with a minimum of 351 aircraft, and the potential of up to 475 aircraft to be supplied across program duration.

The AMETEK PDS Motors product line offers a wide range of custom engineered brushed DC electric motors with voltage ratings between 18 - 32 VDC, power outputs ranging from 1/10 to 12 HP and speeds up to 30,000 RPM. The DC Motor developed for the T-X Hydraulic Pump is a highly reliable, rugged and proven 28 VDC brush-type, sealed bearing motor (based on part # MP68B-1). It is specially customized to meet the T-X stringent requirements.
