Cobham has more than 50 years of experience in high pressure
pneumatics, pyrotechnics and cryogenic cooling. Within this vast
pedigree in weapon and weapon systems applications, Cobham has the
unique ability to offer tip to tail control solutions from weapon
ejection, target identification and in-flight weapon control.
Cobham's Tactical Control Systems offering ranges from components,
through sub-systems, to complete end-to-end system solutions.
Weapons Ejection and Control Systems
Cobham's compressor systems provide on-aircraft pneumatic
pressurisation capability with integrated motor control and
moisture removal. Pneumatic bomb racks and missile eject
launchers, utilising Cobham's family of fast acting ejection valves
and accumulators, provide repeatable, rapid ejection of weapons
with reduced life cycle cost per ejection.
Following weapon release, Cobham's wing and tail deployment
actuation systems provide rapid deployment capability to mitigate
weapon stability issues and increase range. Pneumatic and
pyrotechnic actuation systems offer large potential energy
solutions at low cost and long storage life.
Cobham offers the ability to encompass its experience in
pneumatic, electromechanical and motor control into a complete
weapon control actuation system package. Integrated control
actuation systems (CAS) offer a custom solution that offers lower
cost and reduced complexity.
Cryogenic Cooling Systems
For Infrared Targeting and Guidance Systems
Cobham's cryogenic expertise enables infrared systems all over
the globe through ultra-long life cooling devices for a variety of
aerospace and defence applications. Cobham works directly
with customers to produce systems which exceed mission
specifications, such as cryocoolers and controllers, cryostats, and
pressure vessels. Our family of products provides cost effective,
lightweight, long life, and low power consumption solutions.
Solution Development through Customer Collaboration
Cobham's five decades of experience in custom design and
manufacture of high pressure pneumatic, pyrotechnic and cryogenic
systems gives it the unique ability to apply a vast skill set for
solution development. Cobham's belief in a collaborative
relationship with customers allows it to work closely with
potential customers to identify a requirement, then develop and
optimise the solution.
With its pedigree and wide range of system design capability,
Cobham can work with you as a strategic partner early in the design
process to define specifications for system optimization.
Cobham's capabilities range from building integrated subsystems
with our components as the foundation, to offering off-the-shelf
solutions for the military and aerospace markets which reduce
cost and program risk.
