B-52 Hot Pit Refueling Problem Definition Workshop

Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) is seeking to develop a modeling and simulation analysis effort that will quantify risks and produce a concept of operations of how bombers can land, refuel on the ground, and then take back off. The capability of modeling hot pit refueling, the transfer of fuel into aircraft fuel tanks with one or more aircraft engines running, is being sought for the B-52. This will allow the Command to assess risk of the procedure which will prevent engine and mission system shut down, avoid delays, reduce risk, and reduce the need of special equipment to restart the engines and systems.
