Parker Aerospace has received an industry contract to provide the flight control tail actuator, a mechanical device that converts energy, for Boeing“™s unmanned aerial refueler.

The company said Monday its actuator uses electrohydraulic servo actuation technology, and will function to support the MQ-25 test unit. A variety of military and commercial aircraft use the Parker-made EHSA technology.

“Parker Aerospace“™s MQ-25 flight control actuator is engineered similar to Parker“™s other actuators currently serving the U.S. military,“ said Drexel Pope, director of new development programs at Parker Aerospace's control systems division.

The MQ-25 carrier-based aircraft is designed to address the U.S. Navy“™s immediate refueling needs. Boeing is working to deliver four operational MQ-25 units to the Navy by 2024.

Parker Aerospace is a business unit of Parker Hannifin, a global provider of flight control technologies.
