Optimisation through Integration
Offering high performance, cost effective solutions, your
specific needs can be serviced in a number of ways. Cobham can
supply off-the-shelf cryogenic cooling components such as mission
proven high pressure gas bottles with integrated valves, or we can
develop custom solutions to provide a fully optimized and
integrated cryogenic system.
High Pressure Gas Bottles
Cobham has extensive experience in designing highly reliable and
ultra long life gas storage bottles that are custom designed to fit
within any seeker cavity. Cobham's welded closed bottles
provide unmatched sealing rates and can be manufactured from a
variety of materials including inconel, stainless steel, or
titanium and can be used to store argon, nitrogen or krypton.
Ensuring the gas flow remains pure from start to finish, the
pyrotechnically actuated valve uses the same "metal to metal"
sealing technology Cobham pioneered over 50 years ago.
Cobham's cryogenic cooling systems can be found on missile
applications such as Javelin, Tactical Tomahawk, and Standard
Missile-3 and space-based missile defence applications such as the
Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Exoatmospheric Kill
