- Structure needed to be rated for high temperatures (780°F/415°C)
- Tight conformance to applicable regulations
Lockheed Martin required a jet blast deflector suitable for running F-22 aircraft at full power with afterburner. BDI’s GS series is the worldwide standard for unabated power check pads and can withstand the extreme temperatures and velocities of this application. Virtually all F-22 bases are equipped with GS series blast deflectors by BDI.
