Design and Build Adjustable Tailstands for the F-22 Raptor

USAFThe USAF at Tyndall AFB desired platforms that would allow the maintenance personnel to access the vertical stabilizers of the F-22 Raptor. Once again, these stands had the unique requirement of being operated in a Hazardous Location of Class I, Division I environment. However, these stands had to follow the 60 degree vertical angle of the stabilizer and have the ability to translate front and back along the wing.

JSI Solution:

JSI was able to propose a design that the USAF accepted. JSI is now building the stands.
