PTI delivers first ARR for Korea's multirole fighter
Wednesday, 28 April 2021
The latest aerial refuelling receptacle design leveraged PTI's existing Boeing F-15 product, but had to accommodate all new installation interfaces and operational loads for the KF-X aircraft.

PTI Technologies has delivered the first Aerial Refueling Receptacle (ARR) to Korea Aerospace Industries for the KF-X fighter aircraft. The KAI KF-X is a joint South Korean and Indonesian 4.5-generation fighter aircraft development program with the goal of producing an advanced multirole fighter for the South Korean and Indonesian air forces.

"Having only acquired this program, as well as the underlying legacy technology in 2019, I am proud of what the PTI team has accomplished," says Rowland Ellis, President of PTI Technologies. "While this ARR design leveraged our existing Boeing F-15 product, we had to accommodate all new installation interfaces and operational loads for the KF-X aircraft. This significantly challenged the schedule but the program team was able to meet this challenge to design and deliver this first unit for KAI."

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with KAI for the development of this new aerial refueling design for the KF-X aircraft providing enhanced operational capability for the aircraft. We are looking forward to a long working relationship with KAI in support of the KF-X and other future aircraft programs," continues Ellis.
