Radar, Sensor & Surveillance Electronics Cooling

Ensure the reliable, high-performance operation of radar sensor, and surveillance electronics such as Transmit/Receive modules, RF components and power supplies with advanced solid conduction, heat pipe technology and heat exchangers from Aavid Thermacore.

radar electronics cooling THAADSpecialized thermal solutions, capable of delivering high-performance cooling of concentrated thermal loads, are critical for ensuring reliable performance from the sensitive electronics found in a phased-array radar. Minimizing device-to-device temperature variation improves system performance, and Aavid Thermacore's thermal management solutions are ideally suited to deliver this capability.

Aavid Thermacore's high-performance and lightweight cooling solutions are capable of transferring high heat loads and high heat fluxes with a minimal ∆T. Depending on the device power level and thermal performance requirements, Aavid Thermacore offers a range of options to meet your needs. Passive options include:

  • Advanced solid conduction cold plates (to maximize the thermal performance vs mass tradeoff)
  • Embedded heat pipe cold plates (to effectively move the concentrated thermal loads of electronics devices to cooled surfaces for dissipation)
  • Vapor chamber cold plates (to maximize performance for a given value)

These products deliver high-performance thermal solutions for military and civilian aerospace/avionics radar systems and advanced radar, sensor and surveillance electronics.

cold-plate-newFor any thermal requirements in any military or civilian radar, sensor or surveillance electronics application, Aavid Thermacore's cold plate technology can be the answer. Aavid Thermacore's technologies are proven to ensure reliable radar systems operations in harsh environments such as high altitude, shock and vibration or extreme temperature and humidity.

In applications requiring indirect cooling of less powerful electronics, Aavid Thermacore’s standard and custom product line of enclosure heat exchangers can provide system level electronics cooling and allow the radar electronics to be isolated from harsh environments such as humidity, dust/dirt, sand and water.
