E-2D In Flight Refueling

An Analysis of Options

The Voletude led Integrated Product Team empowered PMA 231 with additional in-flight refueling options by issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to industry for alternative solutions in lieu of the proposed prime design. The final report included both a qualitative and quantitative assessment of each option including a risk assessment, mitigating strategies and associated costs. The results allowed PMA 231 to not soley rely on the prime manufacturer for the in-flight solution.
