Parker Aerospace to deliver SprayCool thermal management systems to Northrop Grumman for surveillance aircraft

Parker Aerospace in Liberty Lake, Wash., a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corp., won a contract from Northrop Grumman to deliver thermal-management systems for the U.S. Air Force Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle and U-2 manned reconnaissance aircraft.

The contract, worth more than $4 million, calls for Parker’s SprayCool chassis and support hardware as part of Northrop Grumman’s Airborne Signals Intelligence Payload (ASIP) program. The Lockheed Martin U-2 aircraft employs six SprayCool chassis per aircraft, whereas the Northrop Grumman Global Hawk UAV uses two.

ASIP is a next-generation, signals intelligence (SIGINT) sensor being built for the U.S. Air Force. It is designed to provide the warfighter enhanced signals intelligence capabilities, including the ability to detect, identify, and locate radar, communication, and other types of electronic signals.

Parker Aerospace personnel will deliver hardware for the ASIP systems on RQ-4 Global Hawk and U-2 reconnaissance aircraft later this year.

Part of Parker Aerospace’s Thermal Management Systems (TMS) organization—with offices in Liberty Lake, Wash., and Mentor, Ohio—is the former SprayCool (previously known as Isothermal Systems Research, or ISR), which Parker Aerospace acquired in 2010. The team specializes in liquid-cooled, environmentally sealed enclosure and cold plate products for harsh environments in defense, aerospace, and industrial applications.
