Marotta Controls, Inc. Key Developments

Marotta Controls Develops New Technology That Revolutionizes AC-DC Power Conversion

Marotta Controls announced the application for a key patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office covering its most recent innovation in power conversion technology. The patent-pending invention is a high power AC to DC converter that provides isolated and regulated conversion in a single step at unity power factor. This new power converter has broad applications across multiple markets and platforms and has been aptly named '1-STEP AC-DC Conversion'. Marotta’s new patent-pending 1-STEP AC-DC Conversion technology delivers unity power factor at full and partial loads with total harmonic distortion levels below 3% (<3%). Load sharing allows the design to modularly scale to 20 kilowatts and beyond, delivering high power conversion efficiency up to 95%. 1-STEP provides significant improvement in weight, cost and complexity when compared with the present art in three phase active power rectification and conversion.

Denel Dynamics Selects Marotta Controls, Inc. to Provide its MPACT Pure Air Compression Technology

Marotta Controls, Inc. announced that it has been selected by Denel Dynamics to provide its MPACT Pure Air Compression Technology for IR missile seeker cooling of Denel's new A-Darter short range air-to-air missile. This is a significant milestone for Marotta Controls as it represents the first export of the MPACT system. The A-Darter is a fifth generation Imaging Infrared (IIR) short range air-to-air missile (SRAAM) designed by Denel Dynamics in South Africa, in co-operation with Brazil. The A-Darter missile may be designated to a target by using the aircraft's radar, a helmet sighting system or the missile's own effective autonomous scan feature. The seeker's large look-angles and the airframe's agility enable high off-bore sight helmet designated firings. Long-range intercepts beyond IR detection range are also possible with the lock-on after launch capability of the A-Darter. MPACT is a proven low-risk solution for the cooling of infrared missile seekers. From missile load to launch, the MPACT system will provide the A-Darter with a continuous flow of pure dry air to cool the IIR seeker, enhancing the missile's capability and efficiency in clear and adverse weather. Because the air is virtually free of moisture and other impurities, MPACT reduces the risk of seeker fouling or freezing, improving reliability and combat readiness. With support from Denel Dynamics the integration of A-Darter onto the wingtips of the South African Air Force's (SAAF's) JAS 39 Gripen fighters has already been completed and the integration of the A-Darter onto the SAAF's Hawk Mk.120 trainer aircraft including MPACT in the launchers are currently taking place. Under this agreement Marotta Controls will provide Denel Dynamics with both development and production units. Ground testing of development units has commenced, with flight testing to follow in 2016. Manufacturing and delivery of the MPACT systems will start soon after completion of the ground testing on the development units. The Marotta Controls MPACT is a significant addition to the A-Darter Missile System Solution. It provides improved operational performance including unlimited mission time for the A-Darter missile and greatly enhances the deployability of the missile system with significantly reduced life cycle costs.

Lockheed Martin Selects Marotta Controls to Develop Multiple Power Conversion Units for Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile

Marotta Controls announced that it has been selected by Lockheed Martin to develop multiple power conversion units for the Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), which Lockheed Martin is developing as a joint program with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Air Force. Lockheed Martin will integrate Marotta’s power conversion units into various avionics systems within the missile. LRASM is a precision-guided anti-ship standoff missile that meets the needs of the U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters. Capable of launch from B-1B or F/A-18E/F aircraft, LRASM is designed to fly to the target area, find and defeat the target. Marotta's power conversion units are critical components of LRASM, converting aircraft power into reliable output power for various avionics systems within the missile. Each power conversion unit required a careful balance of meeting performance while optimizing efficiency in the extremely demanding missile environment. These power conversion units achieve efficiency, minimal weight and optimal thermal management through simple and proven topologies, performance based component selection, and efficient power conversion. Under this agreement Marotta Controls will provide Lockheed Martin with qualification and Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) units. This new contract follows the trajectory of Marotta's previous successes with power conversion units for missile systems, which include the power conversion unit for the U.S. Army's M299 Launcher Modernization program.
