Fairchild Controls to help cool B-52 bomber electronics

  • 12-Jan-2009 02:49 EST
Fairchild Controls, a business unit of EADS North America headquartered in Frederick, MD, has been selected to develop an airborne cooling system for Northrop Grumman Corp.’s ALQ-122 electronics suite installed on U.S. Air Force B-52 strategic bombers. The project’s first phase includes delivery of three prototype cooling units, called chillers, and the associated controls to Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems Division. Successful completion of a flight and ground test program is expected to be followed by orders for production hardware, which will equip B-52s being outfitted with Northrop Grumman’s modernized electronic warfare self-protection systems.
