The central system converters in Naval hangar 201 were not functioning properly and operating at less than 50 percent capacity. A major overhaul was required and the spec list was extensive. No problem for FCX Systems. An RFP issued by the U.S. Navy at the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland outlined the following: Two solid-state 312 kVA 400 hertz parallelable central system converters that would distribute power to eight new dual output gate box/line drop compensators. One solid-state 90 kVA 400 hertz converter. Seventeen 100-foot aircraft cables and cable racks. And, removal of two older 312 kVA converters located in a small equipment room. There was more: the new 312 kVA converters needed to fit into the same footprint as the old converters . . . and re-use existing feeder and distribution wiring. To prevent interruptions during ongoing operations in this critical hangar, the installer had one weekend to remove the existing 312 kVA converters, install the two new converters and return the facility to full service. By carefully coordinating with the installation contractor, FCX Systems was the key to successfully completing the project in the time required. 400 hertz power was restored to hangar 201 and the U.S. Navy is well-positioned to support mission efforts. Another FCX success.
In 2009, the U.S. Navy was anticipating the deployment of the F-35 joint strike fighter from its aircraft carriers. However, there were two challenges onboard: power and space. FCX Systems provided solutions for both. Specifically, the Navy’s RFP called for the development of a system that would deliver power to 400 hertz AC and 270-volt DC aircraft. There was to be minimum impact on the existing equipment and space. FCX, a military contractor since 1987, used its experience with the 400 hertz AC and 270-volt DC high performance supplies to cross utilize a large portion of the existing 400 hertz system, providing substantial savings in cost and space. In fact, the 270-volt DC addition designed and produced by FCX is a compact pod mounted in a remote, out-of-the-way location. With innovation and expertise, FCX won a multi-year contract for delivery of 438 270-volt DC units, which was completed in 2013. In 2015, FCX was awarded a five-year contract for 300 additional units. Performance and reliability that only FCX can deliver.
The United States Air Force depended upon one firm to manufacture its 270 VDC power supply for the F-22 Raptor. That firm is FCX Systems. In 1999, the engineering staff from Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California distributed an inquiry: they needed a power supply for a 270 VDC military aircraft. This was not a normal 270 VDC. It required a fast, dynamic response with excellent voltage regulation. Simply stated: they needed a power supply that was as technically advanced as the new fighter jet. Eleven manufacturers submitted systems. All eleven were unsuccessful in passing the Lockheed Iron Bird Vehicle System Simulator. FCX Systems, specialists in solid-state frequency converters and ground power support, was invited to Edwards and presented with the challenge. They started designs on the flight home and the project continued as a priority until completion. The FCX unit was air shipped to Lockheed Martin’s Vehicle System Simulator in Fort Worth, Texas. After passing stringent test parameters, the unit was subjected to undisclosed tests–confidential tests–and passed. The FCX unit was cleared for the existing test program as well as non-disclosed future programs. The same unit was air shipped to Edwards Air Force Base, installed, and commissioned for the first F-22 of the test program. Today, FCX not only builds the 270 VDC power supply for the F-22, FCX also builds 270 VDC supplies for the emerging F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and a special multifunctional model supplies the F-35 assembly lines around the globe. They call it “The Beast.”

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) on the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is designed to help reduce the likelihood of a collision by alerting the driver. It can also take steps to help reduce the severity of an impact by automatically applying brake pressure if the system determines a collision to be unavoidable. The system goes through three stages when it determines a collision is likely. And you can adjust the distance at which the alerts occur. See the video for details.

This video is NOT intended to be used as a Training Tool. It is simply meant to highlight one of the many deployment options of the CMC "LEVR" Escape System....... The "Byrne Technique" demonstrated in this video is used when a Victim needs to be extracted and the Rescuer anticipates they will need to escape immediately after the Victim is removed, but recognizes there are no safe anchoring options available. As a result the Rescuer needs to keep their Anchor Hook available in order to secure their system and safely exit after the Victim. Out of the two main options of using a system for Victim Rescue the 'Byrne Technique" is the more challenging and involved of the methods we teach, but it does have advantages...….. OK now for the DISCLAIMER: Using an Escape System for Victim Rescue is not condoned by NFPA standards or the Manufacturers of these types of systems - It is a technique used in Extreme Situations when all other avenues of Rescue or Escape have been exhausted or are unavailable. The methods shown in this video should NEVER be attempted in an actual emergency without first receiving proper instruction and extensive practice.
