- Coordination of ongoing airside operations
- Tight conformance to applicable regulations
- Structure needed to be rated for high temperatures (78°F/415°C)
The US Navy widely uses BDI’s GS-Series blast deflectors for unabated power check pads. These deflectors can withstand the extreme temperatures and velocities of this application. After many years of service, these deflectors may require maintenance and recertification. For this project, BDI refurbished and recertified the deflector, which involved a full power afterburner test with a F/A-18 aircraft.
