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. The engineering staff from Edwards AFB approached FCX to review the specifications and provide a possible solution.

It was not a normal 270 VDC requirement as defined in MIL-STD-704; this required a fast, dynamic response with excellent voltage regulation.

FCX completed its unit and air shipped it to Lockheed Martin’s Vehicle System Simulator in Fort Worth, Texas. After passing stringent test parameters, the unit was subjected to undisclosed tests of a confidential nature, and passed. The FCX solution was cleared for the existing test program and non-disclosed future program requirements.

The same unit was then air shipped to Edwards AFB, installed and commissioned for the first F-22 of the test program.

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 […]
