Radar/EW Aperture Cold Plate Innovation for Increased Thermal Performance
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The proposed effort will seek to design and develop vacuum brazed high density folded-fin modular heat exchangers. The scalability of these heat exchangers would provide a means for fabricating large area high performance cold plates by joining via friction stir welding. Friction stir welding is a solid-state joining process that results in minimal distortion of metal characteristics. The advantages of this approach would be an increase in system performance, reliability and efficiency. From a manufacturing stand point the technology would establish the capability to facilitate future product improvement across a broad range of development programs.
