Our power and thermal management system (PTMS) integrates a conventional auxiliary power unit, environmental control system and emergency power into a single system. This integrated package, outfitted on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft and available for more electric architecture (MEA) aircraft, represents a first for the industry.
Our advanced technology offers a dramatic contrast against conventional systems, including:
- Savings in aircraft weight of about 1,000 pounds
- Savings in aircraft length of about 10 inches
- Significantly increased reliability
- Savings in aircraft life cycle cost
On the F-35, the PTMS integrated power package delivers electrical power for the aircraft main engine start, auxiliary, and emergency power needs, while simultaneously providing thermal management of the aircraft heat loads.
