Case Study: HH-60 Symbol Generator Power Supply

Background and Current Status

  • Power supply for the HH-60 symbol generator
  • No source of supply resulting in negative impacts to mission capability
  • Original design featured multiple noise isolation inductors and contained several obsolescence issues
  • Maintaining original form factor, aircraft interface, and functionality
  • New design will center around a DC-DC converter module
  • Will reduce the total number of parts
  • Will improve the MTBF
  • Will increase efficiency by 20-25% and reduce the thermal output
  • Currently performing reverse engineering, reengineering, and design
