Aspen Systems to Deliver ECU’s to Help Protect US Forces Stationed in Afghanistan

Aspen Systems, Inc. announces receipt of a Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) order for customized Environmental Control Unit’s (ECU’s)

 
PRLog - Apr. 23, 2012 - MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- Marlborough, MA – November 17, 2011 – Aspen Systems, Inc. announces receipt of a Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) order for customized Environmental Control Unit’s (ECU’s) to be used as part of the world’s first two day/night electro-optical/infrared Kestrel wide-area persistent surveillance system for aerostats or tethered blimps.

The customized ECU removes 350 Watts of waste heat from an Aerostat deployed motion-imagery system.  Since it is an airborne system, Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) are key drivers to the program.  Aspen’s solution was chosen because of its inherently compact vapor compression refrigeration technology and miniature compressor.  Aspen’s product solution weighs a mere 12 lbs.

Aspen has developed the system and component technology used in the Kestrel ECU over the past 3 years under US Army funded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs.  “This is another great example of SBIR developed technology resulting in a fielded product providing Warfighter protection,” stated Glenn Deming, Vice President of Aspen Systems.  “These units are headed directly to Afghanistan for force protection at over 50 Forward Operating Bases.”
