To maximize the operational capability of any vehicle and its crew it is essential to provide a reliable and efficient environmental control system.
This is especially true when taking into account the harsh operating conditions that the modern day armed forces find themselves in. It is essential therefore that the working environment of the vehicle crew is able to be controlled effectively and efficiently.
Designed using existing standard Bioquell Defense technology combined with COTS parts, our systems provide extremely efficient, affordable and reliable low life cycle cost environmental control. A range of ventilation systems incorporate 5kW – 9 kW of cooling as required, together with heating which can be either stand alone or integrated within the Environmental Control System. Our systems can also easily be adapted to provide bespoke solutions to achieve most performance requirements and interface configurations.
Vehicles currently utilizing Bioquell Defense Environmental Control Systems include UK MoD CVR(T), BAE Systems Piranha II, FNSS ACV 300 / 350 and M113 and General Dynamics M3 Amphibious Bridge Layer.
