The electronic control cooling system design program was conducted to develop a preliminary cooling system design for two aircraftenginemission configurations representative of the projected Air Force requirements for the 1980 time period. The program groundrules prohibited additional airframeengine interfaces therefore, consideration was given to only self-contained, engine mounted systems. Two cooling system concepts, an air cycle and a vapor cycle, were evaluated to ascertain the most attractive approach. Based on the results from trade evaluations, the air cycle system was selected. As part of this program effort, a preliminary mechanical design was prepared and the component requirements were analyzed to determine those components necessitating additional development to fulfill anticipated performance and durability demands.
