The US Navy has awarded a contract to Marotta Controls to supply more than 350 M-PACT-3000 high-pressure pure air generation systems.
Under the contract, which is worth over $6m, the company will supply M-PACT airborne compression and dehydration technologies.
M-PACT is specifically designed to provide a continuous flow of pure, dry air for the cooling of infrared missiles, thereby contributing to effective missile launch.
In addition, M-PACT reduces fouling or freezing of the infrared seeker, which increases missile efficiency and combat readiness.
