This paper presents the results of a study conducted to determine the use of a centralized thermoelectric cooling system to provide cooling for military avionic equipment. The system considered is a recirculatory system capable of cooling an avionic equipment compartment or a number of avionic equipment components from the centralized cooler. The results of the study indicate that the system is competitive on a weight basis with respect to contemporary subsonic avionic cooling systems in the range of from 2 to 4 kilowatts cooling capacity and that the system presents many attractive features for avionic equipment cooling.
