FCX Built the first Hangar Power System for the 270VDC Power Platform

The 2ZEU00004 document and its revisions are controlled and not available publically, as it contains critical technical data which is restricted.

The U.S. military has the most advanced technology on the planet; therefore, it is critical to the security of the U.S. to control information related to this technology.

FCX Systems, Inc. has a long history of working with the development of emerging technology. In fact, design problems are often brought to us for our control and power conversion expertise. This puts us in a position where access to controlled documentation is necessary in order for the work to be performed.

Long before the F-35 / JSF / Lightning program, we were invited to solve a problem related to the F-22 Raptor (F/A-22). The generation of air superiority fighter was being designed with a new power platform. However, the existing pool of bidders with their prototypes failed to meet the stringent power requirements of the aircraft design. A First design prototype was scheduled to be delivered, but no hangar power supply was approved.

FCX IN CONTACTED BY THE F-22 RAPTOR TEST PROGRAM

In 1999, we were approached by the F-22 Raptor Test Program to design a power supply based on previous experience with our problem solving regarding precision power controls, and we were successful.

We were validated on the LMCO Iron Bird simulator at Fort Worth and moved forward as the first hangar power system for the 270VDC power platform (2000).

Following the F/A-22 Raptor program, we were then a part of the JSF fly-off competition between Boeing and LMCO. It was interesting because we were the ground power support for both aircrafts, although they required different power platforms.

In the end, LMCO won the award and our 270VDC power system moved into the JSF development program.

As with all development programs, changes occurred in the design which included power requirements. We were involved with both LMCO technical groups and design teams, and prototype power systems were supplied as the requirements of the various airframes were redesigned.

The requirements of following these changes insisted that we could get access to documents, such as 2ZEU00004 and its revisions.

Today, our knowledge of the power requirements of the 270VDC aircraft allows us to be in a unique position to supply the finest external ground power system available. We know that Maximum Lethality of the aircraft requires the finest, most precise ground support.

Do you know who is supplying your ground power?

Replacing Diesel Generators for the Patriot Missile System. Patriot Missiles, the defensive anti-missile system designed by Raytheon, are installed around the world to protect cities subject to missile attack. While utility power around the word is either 50 Hz or 60 Hz, the Patriot system incorporates several elements that require reliable 400 Hz power. Therefore, […]


 

Engineering Complex Power Supply for F-22 Test Program In the early 2000s, the engineering staff from Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) distributed an inquiry regarding a power supply for a 270 VDC military aircraft. FCX did not initially respond to the inquiry, however no viable solutions were presented by the 11 companies that did respond. […]


 

Powering F-35s Aboard Aircraft Carriers Anticipating the deployment of F-35 airplanes aboard aircraft carriers, the U.S. Navy issued a requisition for development of a system to feed power to 400 Hz AC and 270 VCD aircraft with a minimum impact on the existing equipment and space. FCX used its experience with the 400 Hz AC […]
