The performance and capability of modern vehicle electronics (vetronics), radar, electronic warfare, avionics, as well as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems are enabled by commercial processors and FPGAs – all of which generate lots of heat.
These systems must also survive in extreme battlefield conditions, unlike systems in a commercial server farm, where environments are regulated and there is plenty of space to house the systems.
To battle the heat generated in less-than-ideal conditions, military cooling strategies range from liquid-cooled and air-cooled to conduction-cooled and air-flow-through designs.
This webcast covers the various cooling methods and the challenges faced while implementing them, especially in ever-smaller form factors.
