Title: Advanced Cooling for Satellite Communications On-the-Move Antennas
Agency: DOD
Contract: W15P7T-10-C-A002
Award Amount: $727,162.00


Technology Applications, Inc. proposes a Modular Antenna Cooling System to address the advanced cooling needs for the Armys Satellite Communications On-the-Move Antennas. The proposed solution uses active as well as passive cooling elements with design features aimed at reducing or eliminating contact resistances and effectively moving heat to an integral heat sink. The modular design allows for the base passive system to be used alone for lower heat rejection applications. An active cooling added to the base passive cooling system allows for higher cooling capacity required in extreme environments or as power density levels dictate. During Phase I, we assessed both the passive and active cooling elements to complete a preliminary system design and address feasibility. In Phase II, we will demonstrate the complete thermal management/cooling system in an integrated antenna package that is adaptable to meet present and future military electronics cooling needs.
