Air Refueling Operator Trainers Project

General Overview: From the KC-135 to the KC-10 and beyond to next generation tanker , ACME Services has helped drive the industry leader, ACME Worldwide Enterprises, in advanced air refueling operator trainers. We are experts in the specialized field of air refueling simulations with unsurpassed experience from models to motion mechanics, and software to systems.

ACME’s air refueling operator trainers intensify realism and effectiveness with capabilities and features such as:

   • Sophisticated Control Loading Systems
   • Aural Cueing and Simulated Radios
   • Image Generation
   • Instructor Operator Stations
   • Visual Displays
   • Power Supplies
   • Aircraft Identical Controls, Instruments and Gauges

   • Cloud types, density, and elevation
   • Articulated refueling doors
   • Variable intensity-aircraft lights
   • Variable tanker and receiver skill levels
   • Special effects such as “boom bites”, cracked windows and canopies, nozzle cocking, static discharge and fuel spray

There are only four Air Refueling Operator Trainers in service with the U.S. Air Force and all four run ACME’s advanced systems. ACME upgraded the two KC-135 Boom Operator Partial Task Trainers (BOPTT) and the two KC-10 Boom Operator Trainers (BOT) . In addition, we’ve already made the jump to the next generation technology by developing a trainer for the remote air refueling operator that will be a part of the new KC-X program.
