Raytheon developing cooling system technology for U.S. Navy

  • 12-Jul-2010 03:17 EDT

The Office of Naval Research awarded a contract to Raytheon Co. to develop next-generation phase-change cooling system technology for the U.S. Navy. The Advanced Naval Cooling System (ANCS) program will develop system level solutions for implementing phase-change cooling technologies in future naval combatants. Raytheon's solution was selected because it can provide increased performance and improved cooling density, resulting in substantial life-cycle cost savings. This program is expected to last 30 months and will include two phases. The contract has a potential worth of $2.1 million if all options are exercised. Raytheon IDS will perform the work for this contract at the Surveillance and Sensors Center, Sudbury, MA.
