Abstract
Aspen Systems Inc. developed a field hardened environmental control system for transit case cooling and heating on the phase I program that provides chilled air to electronics in the transit case. During the Phase II program the proprietary modular cooling system for mobile electronics will be modularized, refined, and optimized to meet performance, weight, volume, and reconfiguration parameters, and a chilled liquid module developed for specialized applications. This system will be highly adaptable and have the capability to maintain lower than ambient temperatures in mobile and stationary electronics enclosures that are deployed to hot desert environments. The sealed ECU maintains low electronics operating temperatures in an environment completely sealed against dirt rain and dust so that MIL STD-810F environmental requirements can be met. Features include a high degree of modularity, enabling the rapid fabrication and fielding of cooling systems that are tailored to system requirements without non recurring engineering costs. The air chiller system is anticipated to be ready for production in less than 6 months and the liquid chiller system will be ready by the end of the accelerated Phase II program.
