Raytheon Successfully Demonstrates Power Management System for F-35 Lightning II Modernization

Raytheon has conducted laboratory testing of the Enhanced Power and Cooling System (EPACS). The energy management system was developed by Collins Aerospace and is designed to support the Block 4 upgrade and future upgrades of the fifth generation F-35 Lightning II fighter.

What is known

EPACS lab tests completed successfully. Raytheon expects the system to reach Technology Readiness Level 6 by the end of this year. In 2024, the company will be able to launch an engineering and manufacturing development program (Engineering & Manufacturing Development).

EPACS will provide a significant increase in cooling capacity (by a factor of two) and require less power from the F135 engine. This will increase the performance and durability of the power plant.

A Raytheon press release states that EPACS will be able to meet the growing cooling needs of the F135 engine. According to the manufacturer, the new energy management system will be compatible with all versions of the fifth generation fighter (F-35 A/B/C).
