Airborne thermal control unit


An advanced pod electronic cooling system, Digital Control Unit (DCU) continuously monitors Meggitt Defense System’s RS-374 thermal the TCU’s operation and detects and isolates control unit (TCU) provides cooling and heating to faults in the TCU and its shop replaceable a forward-looking infra-red (FLIR) electronics assemblies (SRAs).

Faults are stored in non-sensor pod. The pod is mounted on an adapter volatile semiconductor memory. A high attached to the fuselage of an F/A-18C/D. An performance fan allows ground operation of the efficient ram air scoop captures required air flow TCU. over the entire flight profile with minimum drag.

This represents another exciting program in which TCU power requirements,115Vav, 3 phase, 400Hz Meggitt Defense Systems is proud to be a team and 28Vdc, are obtained directly from the aircraft member. power supply.
