Airborne Platforms

Innovative Airborne power solutions have been designed, built and sustained for over 30 years by Espey in avionics, weapons, communication, display, and radar applications at Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumman, and General Dynamics among others. A sampling include the following programs:

  • Raytheon J-LENS counter-cruise missile aerostat
  • Apache AH-64 vision and targeting system
  • F-16 and F-18 helmet visor targeting display
  • E2- C Hawkeye and E2-D Advanced Hawkeye high voltage power supplies
  • C-130 Hercules transformers.

AC/DC, DC/DC Power Converter (Airborne)

Product ID: EL-181-PS

Espey Mfg. designed and manufactures this power supply for a prime military contractor supplying helmet mounted cueing systems for tactical aircraft.

DC/DC Power Converter Module (Missile Application)

Product ID: HO-2K1-PS

This miniature switchmode power supply (MSPS) is designed for use in missile applications. The MSPS uses a +/-20Vdc input voltage to provide six regulated DC voltage outputs. These voltage outputs are –2500V, +640V, +180V, +15V, - 15V and +5V. The MSPS includes filtering on the input to reject high frequency noise spikes generated by mechanical power generators. The line and load regulation for the +640V output is less than 1%. The voltage regulation for the low voltage outputs is less than 4%. The power supply will operate from an input voltage range of 16Vdc to 35Vdc. The MSPS will reject 1-volt noise spikes generated at 1kHz. The power density of the MSPS is 5 Watts per cubic inch.
