Environmental Control Systems

Like living machines, sensors and weapons require the right atmosphere to thrive. AECS is the only company that gives you full digital control over all environmental aspects (pressure, volume and temperature). Featuring universal power compliance, AECS environmental control systems can be transferred from platform to platform, regardless of the native power scheme.

We fabricate the world’s lightest, most cost-effective ECS using composites and 3-D printed materials (or metal if weight is not a concern) — all designed in-house — as well as COTS components and subsystems. The scalable architecture of AECS designs allows plug-and-play performance in the simplest or most complex applications. AECS’ ability to package systems within the most stringent customer-defined envelopes remains unchallenged.

AECS systems are intelligent, capable of learning and adapting to environmental patterns presented. Our designs monitor their own health and report it back to the hosting platform. Using flash programming or direct bus communication, you may upload and store multiple unique mission profiles for multiple platforms. Our ECS can then detect which sensors are installed and specifically cool to your pre-configured settings.

Vapor Cycle Systems

AECS vapor cycle systems offer superior thermal control and are efficient in every way: all-electric, bleedless and composed of long-lasting, lightweight material. AECS designs deliver maximum conditioning power through multiple variable, high-capacity heating and cooling circuits.

Air Cycle Systems for Fixed-wing Aircraft & Helicopters

We’ve taken conventional bleed-air cycle technology and made it lighter, more compact and less taxing on engine efficiency. All AECS air cycle systems have the same high build quality as our other products while offering full control over temperature, pressurization and ventilation. Get in touch with us for more information about next-generation conditioning for cabin air and avionics.
