Value Engineering Feasibility Study for System Controller Chassis/Connector Redesign

Electronic assemblies are used to control various systems in an aircraft. Under normal operating conditions, these undergo vibration, and therefore have an expected life span. Different designs are analyzed to reduce production cost, and these designs must ensure that the electronic components contained within the hardware can tolerate the same operating conditions without failure. With time continuous research projects are being conducted to produce products with the same quality and lower costs, and this is one of them.

Thermal Performance Study of Switch Module Redesign

Thermal analysis is performed on a proposed design change on electronic assembly to ensure that it meets customer requirements (temperature ranges) and is a more cost-effective design. Such design change should be cost efficient. The important aspect, in addition to the design, is interacting with different engineers at different positions in the company. Working with mechanical engineers and suppliers in achieving such targets and ensuring the work done is viable and on track.

Calibration and characterization of micro-spectrometer

Project will see the calibration and characterization of a next-generation spectrometer for advancing both atmospheric research and the Canadian space community by providing instruments for atmospheric research for UAVs and nanosatellites. Calibrating these spectrometers will give the science community a new way to monitor atmospheric gases such as greenhouse gas or pipeline leaks with the option of a low-mass, low-cost and reliable measurement from an airborne platform.

Feasibility study of dual input clamp undir DC-DC converter for 737 SPU replacement

The main objective of this project is to a) investigate feasibility and suitability of a new proposed DC-DC converter based on a novel “Dual Input Clamp Unidir DC-DC Converter”, and b) validate and quantify its projected benefits including reduced parts count, higher efficiency, lighter weight and more reliable as compared to existing commercial products. Cost-effective, efficient, reliable and high-speed gate drivers, clamp circuits, and HF isolation transformer suitable for operation at switching frequencies of 100 kHz need to be developed for the proposed DC-DC converter.
