30th April 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) on 29 April confirmed that it has teamed up with Australia-based Conflux Technology to develop a new heat exchanger.

The exchanger will be produced using a metal Additive Manufacturing process which will enable it to be integrated with a range of GA-ASI UASs such as the MQ-9B SkyGuardian (pictured).

Michael Fuller, CEO of Conflux Technologies, stated that: ‘Fundamental efficiency gains require heat transfer innovations. In Conflux we have a highly innovative engineering team that blends first principles thermo-fluid dynamics with design creativity and Additive Manufacturing process expertise.’

Under Project Air 7003, the Australian Department of Defence recently selected the GA-ASI MQ-9B SkyGuardian to provide unmanned capability to the ADF.
