September 2014 — Innovative Tactical Bulk Fuel Delivery System Restraint System

Safe, Inc. has been awarded a Phase I SBIR program to develop an innovative tactical bulk fuel delivery system restraint system for the CH-53K King Stallion rotorcraft currently in development for the U.S. Marine Corp. The restraint system will solve current problems of high crew workload, excessive weight, inability to meet the required retention loads when the tanks are filled to capacity, and the inability to roll fully loaded tanks on the track roller system in the CH-53K. Safe’s design will meet the Navy’s 20/20/10 G loading requirements with full tanks that can be rolled in and out of the aircraft, minimizing crew effort and fatigue, and reducing load time, while increasing operational capability, reliability, maintainability, and affordability.
