Research Institution
The proposed Phase I study will lay the foundation for development of a new high-performance cooling system for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Ground Mobile Radio (GMR). A proof-of-concept study will be undertaken to show how the cooling system will meet the heat dissipation requirements and space constraints, and endure the operating environment of GMR. The study will determine the required hardware changes, footprint, reliability and thermal analysis, unit and life-cycle cost projections, and maintenance procedures, as well as address the maturity of the technology. A cooling system will be designed to condition and deliver the coolant to the desired pressure, temperature and flow rate while conforming to the weight, volume and packaging constraints of GMR. The cooling system will be fabricated and tested during the Phase II study.
