- Structure needed to be rated for high temperatures (780°F/415°C)
- Tight conformance to applicable regulations
The USAF required a jet blast deflector suitable for running F-15, F-16, F-22, and F-35 aircraft at full power with afterburner. BDI’s GS-Series deflectors are the worldwide standard for unabated power check pads and can withstand the extreme temperatures and velocities of this application. Most US bases with fighter operations have at least one BDI GS-Series deflector.
