How is the RCAF coping with COVID-19? From the Wings to the long-range patrol, maritime helicopter and fighter squadrons, RCAF Today has their stories.
True Blue Power recently announced the company’s inverters and voltage converters are standard equipment on Northrop Grumman’s new MQ-4C Triton autonomous aircraft system designed for the U.S. Navy. The True Blue Power TC120 DC-to-DC voltage converters and TI254 DC-to-AC inverters power mission-critical equipment on the Triton, allowing it to perform surveillance, search-and-rescue and reconnaissance missions, while delivering real-time intelligence to a ground-based control station.
“Triton brings game-changing capability to the U.S. Navy’s maritime patrol mission,” said Doug Shaffer, vice-president and program manager, Triton program, Northrop Grumman. “As a high-altitude, long-endurance autonomous system, Triton will vastly enhance commanders’ common operational pictures around the globe.”
The True Blue Power inverters and voltage converters onboard the MQ-4C Triton feature a highly efficient, fanless design, are lighter and smaller than competing units and require significantly less maintenance. These advanced power solutions are FAA TSO certified and RTCA DO-160G qualified.
