초록

This study compares and analyzes the drogue shape applied to aerial refueling with the U.S. Navy drog shape through basic analysis of the model based on the flying fish shape, a marine creature. Flying fish is a creature that is advantageous for non-powered downhill, and this shape is applied to the probe feeding method to minimize the burden on the pilot and the need for refueling technology, which are disadvantages of the probe method. To this end, the results through analysis of basic studies were confirmed, and the superiority and insufficiency of the flying fish shape model and the US Navy drogue model were compared. Therefore, as confirmed through analysis, the flying fish model had a 14.1% lower maximum air pressure and a 9.1% faster maximum speed. Based on this, it is hoped that the advantages and disadvantages of flying fish shape models will be confirmed through actual flight tests in the future.
