Advanced Cooling Technologies Receives Outstanding Supplier Award from ITT/Geospatial Systems Group
Lancaster, Pennsylvania – October 25, 2011 – Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) announced today that it has been recognized by ITT/Geospatial Systems Group for dedication, ingenuity and excellent support to ITT’s weather satellite instrument program for the Advanced Himawari Imager (AHI).
ITT is manufacturing the AHI for Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and their end customer, the Japanese Meteorological Agency. The AHI is based on the ITT Advanced Baseline Imager for the NASA and NOAA Geostationary Operational Satellite-R, or GOES-R. ACT delivered a number of unique Constant Conductance Heat Pipe (CCHP) designs for the instrument thermal management as Flight shipset hardware.
The award was accepted by John Hartenstine, Manager of ACT’s Aerospace Products Group, during a design review meeting in Fort Wayne, Indiana earlier this year.
“We’re grateful for this award from ITT and I’m personally very proud of our Aerospace Products team,” says Hartenstine. “We worked closely with the ITT team in the design and development of the thermal management system, and demonstrated our core values of providing quality products, on-time delivery and unparalleled customer service.”
ITT’s Advanced Himawari Imager represents a significant improvement in performance over the current generation geostationary imagers. Beginning with the first Himawari launch in 2014, the AHI will provide scientists and meteorologists with additional and improved data, faster than ever before.
ACT’s Aerospace Products Group consists of personnel having diverse engineering and technical skills, making the group capable of solving some of the most demanding thermal management problems in spacecraft. The group’s customer-focused approach is driving rapid growth and allowing ACT to quickly become a trusted supplier of flight-quality products, advanced research and development, and thermal management consulting services for the aerospace industry. ACT has accumulated a significant on-orbit flight heritage with the CCHP products and expects additional launches in 2011.
