High Performance with Flexibility
The Energy Absorber, also called brake, gear, or arresting engine, is the most important part in setting the performance of the Aircraft Arresting System. With five decades of experience in arresting fighters, we offer a unique and complete range of brakes for arresting aircraft weighing up to 40 tons. We present computer-based simulations of energy absorber performance based on specific requirements. All energy absorbers presented here are suitable in hook cable applications and all can be installed either on ground level, in set-back configuration, or below grade in bunkers (pit).
If you look for the highest possible performance together with maximum flexibility for your hook cable arresting system, the state-of-the-art computer-controlled BC11 energy absorber system is the answer. If the requirement is for a certain aircraft, the WT44 rotary hydraulic brake or the USAF standard BAK-12 are available. In any case, we have the complete range and customer optimized solutions that no other can offer!
