As a leading innovator and manufacturer of new thermal management technologies, ACT is frequently sought out by our military customers to work on thermal challenges for their next generation applications. In this case, ACT worked with Lockheed Martin to help develop the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM). LRASM, featuring a variety of highly sophisticated technologies that allow it to execute long-range missions with high accuracy and reliability, is designed to meet the needs of the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Air Force for advanced precision-guided missile systems. It aims to reduce dependence on external platforms and network links in dense electronic-warfare environments.
Our Role Solving Military Thermal Challenges
ACT supported the effort by developing an advanced passive thermal management system to replace the actively pumped cooling system. This advanced thermal management system reduces the number of parts and system complexity, which in turn creates higher system reliability. The passive operation provides critical mission capability by cooling the electronics responsible for dynamic targeting. This advanced design was the result of ACT’s commitment to consistently investing in new and emerging thermal technologies. It once again demonstrated the many benefits of having the right technology at the right time.
