From fighter jets and cargo aircraft to special mission and rotary wing aircraft, our technologies are designed to deliver reliability in the field, survivability during combat and the monitoring and protection required to ensure personnel safety. With our broad portfolio of high performance hydraulic, fuel, motion control, electrical and engine solutions, we develop safe, reliable and efficient military aircraft solutions for a variety of platforms.
Our fuel and hydraulic systems are engineered to minimize the need for maintenance, increase uptime, and improve operational readiness. Utility actuation systems, like our nose wheel steering systems, improves the aircraft steering performance, while eliminating the need to disconnect the actuator for towing operation. Our close coupled design improves steering accuracy and shimmy damping performance. Our design also increases the powered steering angle increasing the aircraft mobility during taxi operations. Towing operation is also improved with 360 degree movement of the nose wheel. And our engine solutions are enabling lighter, smaller footprint installations that offer reliable performance in harsh environments, minimize fuel burn and decrease carbon and GHG emissions.
When it comes to aerial refueling, speed and accuracy is essential. And Eaton is known as one of the world's principal suppliers of aerial refueling equipment. Our components, from hoses and nozzles to pumps, valves and couplings, are engineered to increase efficiency to help keep aircraft in the air.
