Advancing missile defense capabilities for evolving threats

With today’s growing threats it is critical to maintain the technological edge when it comes to missile defense technology. Vicor world-leading, high performance power modules provide the compact size, flexibility and scalability needed to power the growing suite of advanced onboard sensors being designed into a variety of missile platforms ranging from air-to-surface, air-to-air or surface-to-air.

The power delivery network

A 28V MIL-STD-704F input to -28V at 300W is converted using a DCM isolated, regulated DC converter. The thermal, mechanical and density benefits of Vicor ChiP packaging allow for cost-effective power solutions with previously unattainable system size and weight. Coupled with the high efficiency gained through zero voltage switching (ZVS) topology, these modules provide superior power system performance in a wide variety of environments. In this application, the Vicor DCM3623 provides the DC-DC conversion with a wide input range of 16V to 50V, peak efficiency of 93.6% and power density of 818W/in3
