GE Aviation will provide advanced technologies in mission control systems for the refueling tanker the Boeing Co. will build for the U.S. Air Force, the company announced.
The company will provide a flight management system that will reduce both the tanker's noise levels and fuel consumption by allowing for shorter flight paths and idle-thrust descents.
"We are committed to bringing our next-generation technologies to this new tanker platform," Lorraine Bolsinger, president and CEO of GE Aviation Systems, said in a statement. "The flight management system will enable the aircraft to perform with navigation precision not currently available to the tanker fleet."
