Abstract : This report summarizes the results of a determination of the equipment cooling requirements and the performance characteristics of a refrigeration system necessary to maintain the interior of the forward section (fuselage stations 35 through 166) of the XQ-5 Drone within acceptable temperature limits. Cooling requirements were calculated assuming a mean temperature of 150 F in the electronic equipment trays and 250 F in the turboalternator compartment. The report also establishes the pressurization requirements for the pressure-sealed section of the drone fuselage. The analysis was performed on the configuration of XQ-5 Drones N. 4 and subsequent.
