Collins Aerospace has solved this problem of increased cooling demand time
and time again. As a leading provider of thermal management systems, electric
power generation and distribution, and auxiliary power units, we are experts on
all the key subsystem functions of EPACS. By integrating these capabilities, we
are applying proven solutions to support modernization of the F-35.
The Boeing 787 is just one example that combines environmental control
systems, electric power generation and distribution, and the auxiliary power
unit. Collins designed, integrated and delivered these systems to reduce engine
bleed air usage and optimize the energy usage aboard the aircraft. These systems
have over 10 million cumulative flight hours and counting.
