Air Force chooses power supplies from Behlman Electronics for RC-135V/W Rivet Joint SIGINT aircraft
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., 10 May 2011. U.S. Air Force aircraft electronics designers needed large power supplies for the RC-135V/W Rivet Joint intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft. They found their solution from Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y. Behlman received a follow-on order for the company's commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) DMCA4000 power supply for use aboard the Rivet Joint aircraft. Behlman's DMCA4000 COTS power supplies are rugged 4,000-Watt switch mode units. The Rivet Joint geo-locates RF energy for signals intelligence (SIGINT) missions.
The RC-135V/W Rivet Joint reconnaissance aircraft -- a military version of the Boeing 707 passenger jetliner -- provides near-real-time -intelligence collection, and detects, identifies and geo-locates RF energy for signals intelligence (SIGINT) missions.
The additional Behlman DMCA COTS power supplies for the RC-135 should be delivered this summer and fall. For more information contact Behlman online at www.behlman.com.
