Abstract:

VSE Corporation and a team of three subcontractors, developed, fabricated and delivered three Total Environmental Control Systems TECS modified military air conditioners to Belvoir for subsequent government evaluation. This developmental effort, based on the application of solid state electronic motor controllers to 18,000 BTUH GFE air conditioners, resulted in deliveries of two soft-start TECS one soft-start variable capacity TECS one feasibility study concerning the use of commercial off-the-shelf components in military standard air conditioners and, one repackaging study to use electronic controllers in existing military standard air conditioner designs. VSEs principal task effort conclusions were a Existing technology will support further TECS developmental efforts b and, most commercial off-the-shelf components are not suitable for use in MIL-STD air conditioners. The principal recommendation was that Belvoir initiated an advanced development soft-start TECS task.
