Airborne ISR/EW thermal management solutions


MDSI is a leader in the development testing and production of Advanced Thermal Management Solutions for Airborne Platforms. Our solutions can be found on unmanned platforms, rotorcraft, medium sized platforms like militarized business jets, and larger military transports. Most of our systems have a combination of three thermal management systems: a vapor cycle system to chill air or fluid during flight at the most extreme areas of a given flight envelope or mission profile. This is usually combined with a ram air liquid loop when the VCS is not required and a ground cooling system for when ram air is not available.

Our solutions range from several hundred watts to over 100 kW of cooling in any environment. Our systems are some of the most efficient, reliable, lightweight, solutions available and can be palletized or distributed within an airframe to provide thermal management across multiple sensors, electronics and complex data centers.
