Energy Absorber Test System Facilitates Test of F-35 Actuators
Published by AMETEK Programmable Power
Methods of adjusting flight control surfaces have evolved since the early years of flight when simple mechanical linkages controlled the first adjustable surfaces, with the pilot providing the power. One stop along the way of this evolution was the incorporation of centralized hydraulic systems to deliver hydraulic power to operate actuators at each control surface. But these systems had significant drawbacks.
