The Air Force is developing a test capability to simulate wave foriDs, modes, and power levels of advanced threat airbome interceptors. The Advanced Airborne Interceptor Simulator (AAIS) will be a pod mounted s3-mRilator designed to achieve a high degree of autonomy. The technical challenges of pod mounted simulator includes pod cooling. This Mainstream Phase l. proposal will quantify the cooling requirements and explore passive and active cooling methods to satisfy the requirements. This Phase I effort includes the design and optimization of a rugged, lightweight, AAIS pod cooling system. Experiments are proposed in Phase I to demonstrate the selected concept and to provide a sound basis for substantiating the Phase I performance projections. Phase II will result in the production of a prototype unit capable of being tested in an actual field environment. Data will be collected to verify performance capabilities and will be provided in a final evaluation report. A tremendous commercial potential exists, and Mainstream has already committed funds for a Phase III comimercialization of the hardware.
