Kongsberg Defense Systems selects Parker Aerospace thermal management system for Joint Strike Missile

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., 30 April 2013. The Parker Aerospace business segment of Parker Hannifin Corp. (NYSE:PH) in Liberty Lake, Wash., won a contract to deliver the thermal management system to Kongsberg Defense Systems for its Joint Strike Missile (JSM).  

JSM, the development of which is funded by the Norwegian government, is expected to be the primary strike weapon for its upcoming deliveries of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter single-seat, single-engine, fifth-generation multirole fighters.

Engineers at Parker Aerospace will design and manufacture the missile’s complete thermal management solution, including pumping hardware, cold plates, and fluid conveyance assemblies. Company officials expect to deliver the first set of system hardware to Kongsberg, headquartered in Norway, during the first half of this year.

“The JSM is a great product for our customers, and will capitalize on the successful Naval Strike Missile (NSM) already in service,” says Kongsberg Procurement Manager for JSM Håkon Engebrethsen. “Parker Aerospace brings a wealth of thermal management experience and has a vital role in the development of this system for our latest-generation missile.”

Parker Aerospace’s thermal management systems (TMS) organization--located in Liberty Lake, Wash., and Mentor, Ohio--is part of the Parker Aerospace Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division and specializes in single-phase liquid and two-phase liquid/vapor thermal management products and systems. The TMS team designs and manufactures complete thermal management solutions for military and aerospace customers, often integrating products from across Parker’s significant portfolio.
