A prototype air cooling system for Saab’s Electronic Attack Jammer Pod (EAJP) was successfully tested and evaluated on a GRIPEN combat aircraft last year, Liebherr Aerospace announced in late April.
Liebherr was contracted by Saab in November 2017 to develop the prototype system for the EAJP – a high-performance pod-mounted sophisticated jamming solution for electronic attack missions.
The successful outcome of the 2019 tests provide further evidence for Liebherr’s assertion that its state-of-the-art thermal management technologies for pod applications place it among the market leaders.
As a system supplier, Liebherr has developed two complementary product lines for pod applications based on air cycle and vapour cycle configurations. The company offers compact systems starting from 1kW up to 4kW cooling power for air or liquid loops.
