Design and Build Adjustable Maintenance Stands for the F-22 Raptor

The USAF at Tyndall AFB desired adjustable maintenance platform lifts that would allow the maintenance personnel to access the wings of the F-22 Raptor. These stands had the unique requirement of being operated in a Hazardous Location of Class I, Division I environment.

JSI Solution:

JSI was tasked to design and manufacture aircraft maintenance stands for the F-22 Stealth fighter aircraft. The maintenance stands measure 25’L x 80’H x 7’W and are constructed from lightweight aluminum. These stands follow the contours of the F-22 Raptor and are capable of traveling vertically up to 12”. The aircraft stands are OSHA and AFOSH compliant and come complete with fall-protection features such as anti-skid flooring, stair treads, guardrails, and expanded metal with kickplates. In addition, features such as explosion-proof equipment that includes explosion-proof floodlights, motors, and electrical boxes make the maintenance stands equipped for the most severe hazardous locations of Class I, Division I. Moreover, the maintenance stands are equipped with a removable towbar and high-capacity casters that allow the unit to be towed up to speeds of 5 mph.

“I’d like to take a moment to sing one of your employee’s praises! I can honestly say that, in my 40 years of experience, he’s is one of the few IT’ers who actually “gets-it”. That is, he doesn’t merely deliver the “requested xyz” product because that usually ends up in disappointment. But rather, he goes to extraordinary lengths to deeply a understand and “internalize” what it is the customer is actually trying to achieve-regardless of what is written on the request document. I can comfortably state that he has accomplished more on his own than the previous four developers COMBINED!”

Chief Information Officer

“We use fall protection platforms for F-16, F-15, and F-22. We purchased them from JETechnology out of Orlando, Fla. I cc’d my POC in the email if you would like more info. My guys love that the platforms make the job easier for them to access certain areas safely and it saves them time from moving stands back and forth. FYI, they are in GSA for government purchase.”
